    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.

  • Adrienne Rich's Poetry and Prose: Poems, Prose, Reviews and Criticism (A Norton Critical Edition)

    By Adrienne Rich

    Our Price: $15.00
    • Format: Paperback
    • ISBN-13: 9780393961478
    • Publisher: W. W. Norton & Company
    • Published: January 1993
    In both poetry and prose, the editors have chosen selections intended to give readers a clear sense of Rich's evolution and accomplishment. Many of the poems in this expanded collection are from Rich's five recent volumes—The Dream of a Common Language (1978), A Wild Patience Has Taken Me This Far (1981), Your Native Land, Your Life (1986), Time's Power: Poems 1985-1988 (1989), and An Atlas of the Difficult World (1991). Prose selections include "When We Dead Awaken: Writing as Re-Vision," Rich's canonical statement on feminism; "Compulsory Heterosexuality and Lesbian Existence," on being a lesbian in a heterosexual world; Rich's interview for American Poetry Review, which presents a full and frank discussion of her work; and her previously unpublished commentary on the genesis of the poem "Yom Kippur 1984."The editors have also taken into account the many essays on Rich and reviews of her work that have been published since 1975. Some earlier biographical selections have been replaced with works that focus on the quality of Rich's writing and her place in twentieth-century American literature—not just as a poet, but as a woman, a lesbian, and a mother. Criticism includes thirteen reviews and interpretations of Rich's work by W. H. Auden, John Ashbery, Margaret Atwood, Helen Vendler, Judith McDaniel, Adrian Oktenberg, Charles Altieri, and Joanna Feit Diehl, among others. A second recent study by Albert Gelpi traces the events in Rich's life from which her work evolves. An updated Chronology and Selected Bibliography, as well as an expanded Index, are included.

    Adrienne Rich suggests how poetry has actually been lived in the world, past and present. In this essay, which was the basis for her speech upon accepting the National Book Foundation's Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters, she ranges among themes including poetry's disparagement as "either immoral or unprofitable," the politics of translation, how poetry enters into extreme situations, different poetries as conversations across place and time. In its openness to many voices, Poetry and Commitment offers a perspective on poetry in an ever more divided and violent world.
