Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
It doesn't come as news to say that Adrienne Rich's poetry deserves a central place in USA's canon. The reasons for this claim can be found in a book like this one, where the poems are crafted in such a manner that the reader can enjoy both its architecture as well as its "message". However, is clear in this collection that such separation is impossible, since what the voice witnesses is not as much the world outside, but the ways to perceive that world. Ekphrasis, narrative poems, little vignettes, translations, all come to present an universe endangered but quiet, threatened by its own penchant to self-destruction, but covered by a nonchalant sense of distance. A very interesting reading for all kind of readers.
