♥ Book Title : Fox: Poems 1998-2000
☯ Full Synopsis : ""A challenging collection that should more than satisfy [Rich's] large and loyal following."—Washington Post Book World In this 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. Fox is formidable and moving, fierce and passionate, and one of Rich's most powerful works to date. "Justly celebrated....Rich has long wanted to set her readers' minds blazing...she succeeds."—Publishers Weekly starred review "Intimate, explorative, these are poems with a millennial feel, at once retrospective and forward-looking."—Washington Post Book World"Article| Adrienne Rich| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Adrienne Rich
☯ Full Synopsis : "Although best known as a poet, Adrienne Rich is a versatile critic and a gifted writer of nonfiction and critical theory.

This book is a much-needed comprehensive study of her life and career. It covers the full progression of her poetry from the beginning through her most recent work. In doing so, it clarifies her entire poetic output and illuminates her concepts of nation, the female body, power, and women's sexuality."Article| Cheri Colby Langdell| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Why Write Poetry?
☯ Full Synopsis : "Poets have long been defending poetry in prose, and essays by Sidney, Shelley, and others are a familiar and important part of the Anglo-American literary tradition. This book identifies and examines a related genre - the verse defense of poetry - which shares the same impulse that has led to the composition of prose essays: namely, the desire to protect poetry from its detractors and to promote its value as a vital human endeavor. In the last century or so, this impulse to engage questions of poetry's value in poems has become increasingly widespread, and it has dominated the careers of at least five poets: H.D., Wallace Stevens, W. H. Auden, Adrienne Rich, and Geoffrey Hill. Though these poets espouse very different aesthetic principles, they, like many of their contemporaries, have repeatedly turned to apology in their verse. At first glance, this seems an odd gesture, given that the readers and writers of poetry are those who least need convincing of poetry's worthiness. But questioning poetry in verse is a form of lyric introspection that is productive and well-suited for a modern poet. characterized as one of indifference, defense helps these authors make a claim for poetry's cultural relevance, as well as for its private profit.

♥ Book Title : Feminism, manhood, and homosexuality
☯ Full Synopsis : "Although scholarship in feminist theory, men's studies, gender studies, gay and lesbian studies, and queer theory often intersect, the relationships among these disciplines remain complex and often antagonistic. This book posits a linkage between these disciplines, analyzing how five American writers - Ralph Waldo Emerson, Walt Whitman, Emily Dickinson, Allen Ginsberg, and Adrienne Rich - correlate issues of sexuality and gender by demonstrating that these concepts are linguistic, economic, and political constructions. This discussion and an analysis of Sigmund Freud's theories provide scholars from these disparate disciplines with common ground to share and common space to pursue."Article| William Patrick Jeffs| Statement ..."
