Day #4 – 30 Days, 30 Readings: Adrienne Rich, “Poetry I”

The poetry world, and this troubled world we live in lost Adrienne Rich on Tuesday, March 27th. I think this is a proper poem to remember her by on this 30 days project for National Poetry Month. There were many to chose from, but this one strikes a chord that ties together her mission, her art, and her activism beautifully I think. May she rest in peace.

Her LA Times obituary here.

Another from The Guardian.

  1. Sonofwalt,
    A fitting tribute, good selection and nicely read.

  2. I had not known of Adrienne Rich’s death until now. I chose a poem of hers for a poetry explication I did at the College of Charleston. I had debated putting it on my blog but didn’t know if there was anyone “out there” who would care to read it. Now I’ll add it as my own memorial. The reading by Kristine Byrne and the accompanying video were wonderfully mesmerizing.

      Oh, Kristine is a delight. I adore her! And thank you for your comment. I’m glad to find another Rich reader. 🙂
