In this richly crafted collection of essays from National Book Foundation Medal Winnin poet and essayist Adrienne Rich readers are given a erudite and charmingly precise chronicle of the relation between art and social justice. 'A Human Eye' makes remarkable use of the poet's sensibilities in exploring such issues as language and its power to shape not only those who use it as a vocational tool, but also the impact it has on entire cultures and societies.Among the diverse subjects touched in this collection are socialist manifestos for young readers, rereading early works of Amiri Baraka, the texts of Zionism and the Jewish Diaspora, and many more fascinating essays on the art of words.
Only Rich can write essays that blend politics and poetry so effortlessly. Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
