"We must remember Ruth (Stone) and the others like her, women who make their art in obscurity and discomfort, as so many great artists always have. Indeed, we may well ask ourselves if it is not these "lost" women who constitute precisely the matrilineal literary tradition we feminist critics have been seeking for the last decade."
--Sandra Gilbert, "On Ruth Stone," from Extended Outlooks, The Iowa Review Collection of Contemporary Women Writers, Collier Books, 1982. (Poem collections by Ruth Stone: In an Irridescent Time; Topography; and Cheap, all published by Harcourt Brace.)
