Adrienne Rich: The Moment of Change
Greenwood Publishing Group, 2004 - 277 pages
The volume covers the full progression of her poetry from the beginning through her most recent work. It clarifies her entire poetic output and illuminates her concepts of nation, the female body, power, and women's sexuality. In doing so, it draws on a vast body of literary, theoretical, and cultural scholarship. While the book offers a thorough study of Rich and her works, it also examines the critical reaction that her controversial writings have engendered.
