Description

At issue are the politics of language; the uses of scholarship; and the topics of racism, history, and motherhood among others called forth by Rich as "part of the effort to define a female consciousness which is political, aesthetic, and erotic, and which refuses to be included or contained in the culture of passivity."

Rich is a favorite poet of mine. But as with most poetry, it's about the reader. Poetry is rarely good or bad - it either hits your or it doesn't. Rich's work hits me.
