Why do you think this is? Is this about the way we are all socialized and asked to fit within specific gender roles? Or is there something else to this entirely.

My experience is that male writers are better able to appeal to a universal sensibility while female writers find it difficult to step outside of their gender. This is especially true when it comes to female poets.
