Adrienne Rich was one of the most revered and influential American poets of the last century. In over 30 books of poetry and essays she championed the indivisibility of art and politics, offering a candid and brave articulation of feminism, sexuality, Jewish identity and civil rights.  Her writing examines questions of language and history, the action of poetic imagination in change, and much more.
