Taylor, Valerie and Jeannette Howard Foster. Two Women: the poetry of Valerie Taylor and Jeannette Foster. Chicago, IL: Womanpress, 1976.

Description from Flyer: Jeannette Foster, now eighty, resides in a nursing home in Arkansas and lives in the timeless world of literature. She has retained the wit, lucidity and passionate dedication to books which commended her to thousands of undergraduates during her long career as a university librarian. In her poems, written between 1916 and 1938, readers will find an intense love of nature as well as a love of women which has room for both idealism and passion.
Dr. Foster was one of Kinsey’s first librarians and in that capacity had access to a vast store of unpublished material which undoubtedly furnished some of the data for her masterpiece, Sex Variant Women in Literature. This definitive work, out of print for many years, will soon be re-issued by Diana Press of Baltimore.
Valerie Taylor set out on the path to personal liberation at the age of forty by ending a disastrous marriage and undertaking the total support and upbringing of three sons. She was a rural teacher and office worker from 1956 to 1975 was employed in the publishing industry.
A feminist, peace activist and an advocate of gay liberation, she also spends considerable time worrying about the problem of feeding the world’s population. She has published seven lesbian novels, two other books and a sizeable body of short material. Now retired and living in the East, she is working on a novel about two women over sixty—love at any age!
Ms. Taylor’s influences range from Edna St. Vincent Millay through Gertrude Stein to Denise Levertov. The verses in this volumer were written between 1940 and 1975.
