We are honored to announce the upcoming publication of Adrienne Rich’s COLLECTED POEMS: 1950-2012 (Norton) on June 21st, 2016.
The collection, which begins with an introduction by Claudia Rankine (recently excerpted in the New Yorker), is already receiving tremendous attention. Dan Chiasson writes a richly laudatory review in this week’s New Yorker, in which he astutely observes Rich’s precision of word choice and syntax, and her tremendous evolution as a poet and feminist over the course of her writing career, while Elizabeth Lund calls the collection “spectacular” in her stellar review in the Washington Post.
A celebration for Adrienne Rich’s seminal collection will be at Poet’s House (10 Riverside Terrace, New York, NY) on June 21st at 7pm. The event will be free and open to the public.
