Collected Poems Summary

Collected Poems: 1950-2012 by Adrienne Rich

Adrienne Rich whose poetry is "distinguished by an unswerving progressive vision and a dazzling, empathic ferocity" (The New York Times) was the singular voice of her generation. 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 volume traces the evolution of Rich's poetry, from her earliest, formally exact and decorous work to her later poems, which became increasingly radical in both form and content. Displaying the entire body of Rich's poetry, The Collected Poems gathers and commemorates all Rich's boldly political, formally ambitious, thoughtful and lucid work.

Collected Poems Reviews

"Poetry, like Adrienne Rich's - in her Collected Poems... can awaken us to the kinds of deeper truths that are unsayable in prose..." -- Laura Elkin, Best Books of 2016 - The Guardian
"The book is a fascinating document of shifts in style, swerves in perspective that never, for all that, touch or compromise the integrity of an essential poet." -- Eavan Boland, Our Favourite Books of 2016 - The Irish Times
