    A giant of American poetry … Don

    • Don, a giant, yes. A profound thinker, scholar, poet, writer, teacher, and activist whose work changed the lives of many. Continues to inform mine. Have read just about everything she’s written, poetry and prose. In my opinion Adrienne Rich created the most far-reaching, visionary poetries our age has known. Glad to have your presence here. Feeling bereft yet we were fortunate to have her here for this long. all best, Don. ~ Donna

  1. Reblogged this on word pond.

  2. As with so many, volumes her poetry for me were life-changing. At just the right in my life, a friend handed me “The Dream of a Common Lanugage” and it changed everything. The same poet gifted me with Audre Lorde …. all the best, Don

    • Her work changed my life, as well, Don. I’ve read all the books of poetry beginning with “Diving Into the Wreck” and many of her essays including the ground-breaking “Compulsory Heterosexuality”, and her singular book “Of Woman Born”. Like you, I found Audre Lorde through Rich. We are blessed, aren’t we? Thanks for writing. So happy to find your voice here again. – warmest regards, Donna
