With the passing of Adrienne Rich (1929‚ 2012) last week, we lost a fierce voice, reflective, adamant, and committed. To celebrate her life, spend some time in the pages of her poems. While her work is gathered in more than 20 collections, these five are essential reading, ranging from her earliest to her latest work and including the volumes for which she won awards. All are published by W. W. Norton.
- An Atlas of the Difficult World: Poems 1988‚ 1991
- Collected Early Poems: 1950‚ 1970
- Diving into the Wreck
- Midnight Salvage
- Tonight No Poetry Will Serve
