Germaine Greer

Poetry as Male Display

Hay Festival 2006 , 
In her annual poetry masterclass, Greer explores the idea that 'Literature is a masculinist invention; poetry in particular is a spectacular form of male display. Women have to adapt a language which objectifies them absolutely to become the speakers, the verbal aggressors.'
