Alicia Ostriker is a major American poet and critic. Twice nominated for a National Book Award, she is author of 11 volumes of poetry, most recently "No Heaven" (2005). As a critic, Ostriker is the author of two pathbreaking volumes on women's poetry, "Writing Like a Woman" and "Stealing the Language: The Emergence of Women's Poetry in America." Her most recent critical book is "Dancing at the Devil's Party: Essays on Poetry, Politics and the Erotic." She has also published three books on the Bible: "Feminist Revision and the Bible," the controversial "The Nakedness of the Fathers; Biblical Visions and Revisions," a combination of prose and poetry that re-imagines the Bible from the perspective of a contemporary Jewish woman, and most recently, "For the Love of God: the Bible as an Open Book."
