Tributes: Adrienne Rich

Friday, March 30, 2012

In Adrienne Rich’s verse, the political and the poetical were intensely intertwined.  One critic said that “her body of work can be read as a series of urgent dispatches from the front.”  Widely anthologized and widely read, her voice was distinctive.  She died at the age of 82 from complications of rheumatoid arthritis.  You can hear her interview with Leonard from October, 1993.
