Publisher's Summary

In She Walks in Beauty, Caroline Kennedy has once again marshaled the gifts of our greatest poets to pay a very personal tribute to the human experience, this time to the complex and fascinating subject of womanhood. Inspired by her own reflections on more than 50 years of life as a young girl, a woman, a wife, and a mother, She Walks in Beauty draws on poetry’s eloquent wisdom to ponder the many joys and challenges of being a woman.

Kennedy has divided the collection into sections that signify to her the most notable milestones, passages, and universal experiences in a woman’s life, and she begins each of these sections with an introduction in which she explores and celebrates the most important elements of life’s journey.

The collection includes works by Elizabeth Bishop, Sharon Olds, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Mary Oliver, Pablo Neruda, W. H. Auden, Adrienne Rich, Sandra Cisneros, Anne Sexton, W. S. Merwin, Dorothy Parker, Queen Elizabeth I, Lucille Clifton, Naomi Shahib Nye, and W. B. Yeats.

Whether it’s falling in love, breaking up, friendship, marriage, motherhood, or growing old, She Walks in Beauty is a priceless resource for anyone, male or female, who wants a deeper understanding and appreciation of what it means to be a woman.

    "A Must Have For Every Woman"

    I was so happy when I got this from my mom for my 21st birthday. I love poetry (and especially writing ones too). These poems are so relatable of what I am going through and it's nice listening to the audible version too. It's nice and relaxing. The pacing is excellent and all of the voices narrate the poems great. It's a must have for every woman out there (especially for those who love poetry as much as I do).

    What did you like best about She Walks in Beauty? What did you like least?

    I enjoyed the


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The poetry readers did a wonderful job. As much as I admire Caroline Kennedy, I found her explanatory portions very flat and, for me, it broke the mood that the poems and their readers created.


    Was She Walks in Beauty worth the listening time?

    Yes
