Revisiting Adrienne Rich’s “Twenty-One Love Poems” — PUSSY MAGIC

Adrienne Rich

Cassidy Scanlon delves into the world of Adrienne Rich in comparison to other poets like Pablo Neruda and the contractions between heterosexual and queer relationships in literature and the freedom Adrienne allows women.

In her essay “Uses of the Erotic: The Erotic as Power,” Audre Lorde states:

“The erotic has often been misnamed by men and used against women. It has been made into the confused, the trivial, the psychotic, the plasticized sensation. For this reason, we have often turned away from the exploration and consideration of the erotic as a source of power and information, confusing it with its opposite, the pornographic. But pornography is a direct denial of the power of the erotic, for it represents the suppression of true feeling. Pornography emphasizes sensation without feeling.”

Collected Poems: 1950-2012, Adrienne Rich (intro, Claudia Rankine) (April, W. W. Norton & Company)

Over a half-century’s worth of pathbreaking work, without which a vast cut of present poetry would never have been written and would otherwise be impossible to contemplate. And it’s introduced by Claudia Rankine. No more necessary book of American poetry will be published this year.
