In her seventh volume of poetry, Adrienne Rich searches to reclaim to discover what has been forgotten, lost, or unexplored.

Collected early poems, 1950-1970 by Adrienne Rich( Book )

31 editions published between 1984 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With more than 700,000 copies of her books sold, Adrienne Rich's work is unequaled today in reclaiming serious poetry from scholars and returning it to the lives of general readers. Collected here for the first time are more than 200 poems: all those in her first six books plus a dozen others of those decades. From her first publication, when she was twenty-one, in the prestigious Yale Younger Poets series, the successive volumes of Rich's poems have both charted the growth of her own mind and vision, and mirrored our tempestuous, unsettled age. Her unmistakable voice, speaking even from the earliest poems with rare assurance and precision, wrestles with urgent questions while never failing to explore new poetic territory. This collection is a triumphant assertion of the centrality of poetry in our intertwined personal and political realms, and it confirms Rich's position among the enduring poets of our language
Blood, bread, and poetry : selected prose, 1979-1985 by Adrienne Cecile Rich( Book )

37 editions published between 1986 and 1994 in English and German and held by 1,381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally presented orally or published in feminist and literary journals, the essays in this collection explore the social and political context of Rich's life and art. Examining the connections between history and imaginations, ethics and action, Rich discusses the experiences of being white, female, lesbian, Jewish, and a U.S. citizen. In the title essay, she writes about the social and historical conditions of the making of poetry, and analyzes what happens to the heart of the artist in North America. Other pieces address racism, anti-Semitism, heterosexism, education, and literary criticism. The volume reveals how Rich is not only a major American poet, but a vividly compelling thinker and writer of eloquent prose. ISBN 0-393-02376-1: $15.95

Midnight salvage : poems, 1995-1998 by Adrienne Rich( Book )

23 editions published between 1984 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In these risky new poems, Rich dares to look and to extend her poetic language as witness to the treasures--the midnight salvage--rescued from fear and violence. Andrienne Rich's work has long challenged social plausibilities built on violence & demoralizing power. The poems in Midnight Salvage are risky, infused with the cruelty of history, the presence of the body, the beauty of the natural world, with human love & longing
The school among the ruins : poems, 2000-2004 by Adrienne Rich( Book )

14 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 1,222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this new collection Adrienne Rich confronts dislocations and upheavals in the United States at the beginning of the twenty-first century. The title poem, in a young schoolteacher's voice, evokes the lessons that children (Not of course here) learn amid violence and hatred, "when the whole town flinches/blood on the undersole thickening to glass." Usonian Journals 2000 intercuts faces and conversations, building to a dystopic/utopic vision. Throughout these fierce and musical poems, Rich traces the imprint of a public crisis on individual experience: personal lives bent by collective realities, language itself held to account
Time's power : poems 1985-1988 by Adrienne Cecile Rich( Book )

22 editions published between 1989 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For 30 years, Rich's poetry has revealed the individual personal life--sexualities, loves, damages, struggles--as inseparable from a wider social condition, a world with others, in which the empowering of the disempowered is increasingly the source of hope. Time's Power shows Rich writing with unprecedented range, complexity and authority
Fox : poems 1998-2000 by Adrienne Cecile Rich( Book )

13 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 1,083 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this new volume, Adrienne Rich pursues her signature themes and takes them further: the discourse between poetry and history, interlocutions within and across gender, dialogues between poets and visual artists, human damages and dignity, and the persistence of utopian visions. Here Rich continues taking the temperature of mind and body in her time in an intimate and yet commanding voice that resonates long after an initial reading. With two long exploratory poems ("Veteran's Day" and "Terza Rima") as framework, and the title poem as core, Fox is formidable and moving, fierce and passionate, and one of Rich's most powerful works to date
Dark fields of the Republic : poems 1991-1995 by Adrienne Rich( Recording )

23 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,005 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When does a life bend toward freedom? grasp its direction?" asks Adrienne Rich in Dark Fields of the Republic, her major new work. Her explorations go to the heart of democracy and love, and the historical and present endangerment of both. The poems of Dark Fields of the Republic are a theater of voices: of men and women, the dead and the living, over time and across continents. Rich writes out of dreams and nightmares, conversations actual and imaginary, actions taken for better or for worse, out of histories and songs, humdrum and terrible events, the most intimate loves and love for the world
The will to change; poems 1968-1970 by Adrienne Rich( Book )

19 editions published between 1971 and 1972 in English and held by 970 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arts of the possible : essays and conversations by Adrienne Cecile Rich( Book )

10 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 926 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The essays in Arts of the Possible search for possibilities beyond a compromised, degraded system, seeking to imagine something else. They call on the fluidity of the imagination, from poetic vision to social justice, from the badlands of political demoralization to an art that might wound, that may open scars when engaged in its work, but will finally suture and not tear apart."--Jacket

Collected poems : 1950-2012 by Adrienne Rich( Book )

10 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 820 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Adrienne Rich was the singular voice of her generation and one of our most important American poets. She brought discussions of gender, race, and class to the forefront of poetical discourse, pushing formal boundaries and consistently examining both self and society. This collected volume traces the evolution of her poetry, from her earliest work, which was formally exact and decorous, to her later work, which became increasingly radical in both its free-verse form and feminist and political content. The entire body of her poetry is on display in this vast volume, including the National Book Award-winning 'Diving Into the Wreck' and her prize-winning 'Atlas of the Difficult World.' The 'Collected Poems' of Adrienne Rich gathers and memorializes all of her boldly political, formally ambitious, thoughtful, and lucid work--the whole of which makes her one of the most prolific and influential poets of our time."--Jacket
