Liz Yorke is a counsellor at Nottingham Trent University. She is the author of Impertinent Voices: Subversive Strategies in Contemporary Women's Writing (1991).
`Liz Yorke clearly and precisely explains the ideas of Adrienne Rich's work and situates them in the history of feminist thought. However, this is no dry disputation. Yorke is alive to the creative and dynamic elements in Rich's thinking and, while not neglecting the poetry, she makes a wholly convincing case for the centrality of Rich's prose writing' - Mary Eagleton, University College of Ripon and York St John
