About Nancy Westerfield


Welded Women
Copyright © 1983
by Nancy Westerfield
Kearney State College P

At last a collection of poems by Nancy Westefield makes her work available and provides a more complete and powerful impression of the drama, tenderness, and the wrenching spirit of her work. ... [I]t is unquestionably a woman's perspective but not, as editor Helen Winter Stauffer confirms in her introduction, a typically modern feminist view. Stauffer applies the term metaphysical to Westerfield's poems and that is an apt description. Certainly there is in them the mysterious, the enigmatic, the incongruous. They are tersely written, unostentatiously, by an imperturbable Westerfield. — Anita Norman, Nebraska Library Association Quarterly, Fall 1983
