‘Could, Not Should’: Irma Kurtz and Female Freedom

  ‘The pill! Wow! That changed an awful lot. That was in many ways liberating, but like all liberation, there was a price to pay for everything, you know!’ After 40 years of being the agony aunt for Cosmopolitan, Irma Kurtz has definitely seen a lot of changes to the freedom, and in turn, the problems of womankind.

Defence of Poesy: In a Nutshell

I believe that poetry is such a significant medium because it has no boundaries. Thus, its purpose today is to stretch our minds to new perspectives, to accept new ways of thinking. When writing poetry, it seems like I have infinite possibilities; I use poetry as a coping strategy, a celebration, a memoir. It could be set in the past, present or future; it could circumnavigate my own experience, or that of others, of other species. The form essentially portrays the complexity of existence. Life in all its instances cannot be pinned down to one circumstance, one motive, one ideology. We cannot grasp a straight meaning in so many aspects in today’s postmodern world, and despite poetry being an instance of an unstable, confusing and frankly existential area, this is what paradoxically makes it a constant in our lives. The stability of instability. The uplifting notion that anything is possible.
