Dark Fields of the Republic – Adrienne Rich

darkfieldsoftherepublic

“When does a life bend toward freedom? grasp its direction?” asks Adrienne Rich in Dark Fields of the Republic, her major new work. Her explorations go to the heart of democracy and love, and the historical and present endangerment of both.

The poems of Dark Fields of the Republic are a theater of voices: of men and women, the dead and the living, over time and across continents. Rich writes out of conversations actual and imaginary, actions taken for better or for worse, out of histories and songs, humdrum and terrible events, out of the most intimate loves and love for the world. Through these poems, she extends the poet’s reach of witness and power of connection, and invites the reader-listener to participate.

Collected Poems: 1950–2012 – Adrienne Rich

collectedpoems

From their first publication, when Rich was twenty-one, in the prestigious Yale Younger Poets series, the successive volumes of her poetry have both charted the growth of her own mind and vision and mirrored our tempestuous, unsettled age. Her unmistakable voice, speaking even from the earliest poems with rare assurance and precision, wrestles with urgent questions while never failing to explore new poetic territory.

In Collected Early Poems, readers will once again bear witness to Rich’s triumphant assertion of the centrality of poetry in our intertwined personal and political lives.

A Change of World – Adrienne Rich

achangeofworld

This reissue of Adrienne Rich’s first poetry collection reaffirms the author’s place as one of our most important American poets.

A Change of World was selected by W. H. Auden for the Yale Series of Younger Poets Award. Out of print for decades, this initial collection launched the career of a poet whose work has been crucial to discussions of gender, race, and class, pushing formal boundaries and consistently examining both self and society.

Arts of the Possible: Essays and Conversations – Adrienne Rich

artsofthepossible

The essays in Arts of the Possible search for possibilities beyond a compromised, degraded system, seeking to imagine something else. They call on the fluidity of the imagination, from poetic vision to social justice, from the badlands of political demoralization to an art that might wound, that may open scars when engaged in its work, but will finally suture and not tear apart.
