Adrienne Rich: A Celebration of Her Poems

EVT 598
May 23
7:30 pm
Status: No Registration Required
Adrienne Rich (1929-2012) was one of the defining poets of our time and place. She came to national and international prominence with her feminist poems of the 1960s and 1970s, but her practice, as personal as it was political, evolved over the more than sixty years of her published volumes. The recent publication of her Collected Poems: 1950-2012, her Selected Poems, and of a revised and updated Norton Critical Edition of her Poetry and Prose, have renewed attention to and appreciation of her extraordinary achievement for a world urgently in need of her deeply ethical and eloquent words. On this evening celebrating Adrienne Rich, the four editors of those books will read poems, with commentary, in a dramatic exploration of the whole range of her work. Eavan Boland, a distinguished poet who has written perceptively about Adrienne Rich’s work and influence, will give the introductory remarks.
