Poetry & Drama • 1 hr. • Unabridged • ©

Adrienne Rich's poetry has brought about "moral and political change in a society that has disenfranchised so many." From readings taped at different times in Rich's public life (1951 --2000), we hear the furiously energetic young woman, winner of the 1950 Yale Younger Poets Award, and the measured tones of an even more passionate, respected poet who urges us to "take women's existence seriously as a theme and source for art...." A companion book includes an introduction by J. D. McClatchy, a bibliography, the text of the poems in this compilation--some never before released--plus comments by the poet on poetry. Rich's work remains a revolutionary call to explore the "victimization and the anger experienced by women..." in order to break the boundaries imposed by the patriarchy of art. S.J.H.
