An Essay by Adrienne Rich: Woman and Bird / Poets.org

Woman and Bird by Adrienne Rich

The essay, “Woman and Bird” by Adrienne Rich, from her 2003 essay collection, What Is Found There: Notebooks on Poetry and Politics is not available any longer through the Academy of American Poets. In lieu of its absence  on the Web, I offer the following tribute to her by Andrew J Meyer, To Have Known Simultaneity — Rest, Adrienne Rich.

Post amended on 3.30.12 – DF

Adrienne Rich may be heard reading from  “Woman and Bird” at this link ~ Adrienne Rich interview from 1994

    Thanks, Donna, for sharing my tribute. “Woman and Bird” is a powerful essay; Adrienne Rich a powerful poet. -Andy

    • Hi, Andy. Your article does well by her essay. I look forward to hearing one day that your dissertation is done. All my best with that, Donna

        It is done, in fact (finished in 2010). I appreciate the vote of confidence nonetheless! In any event, thanks again for your comments—meanwhile I’m enjoying looking through your website, etc. (I’m somewhat of a haiku enthusiast myself.) -Andy

      • Ahh, glad to hear it’s behind you now. Tremendous accomplishment. Here’s to poetry. ~ Donna

  1. Donna, my Gender Studies class has no idea how lucky they are to have you come in on Thursday to hear you speak about all kinds of things–poetry, Adrienne Rich, issues of gender and marginalization…so happy!

  2. Thank you for helping me to discover “Borderless”, including the review of Nitoo Das’s “Crowbite”. I posted it on word pond.
