One of the best books on the place of poetry in the world. A beautifully written collection of prose that discusses the integral connection between poetry and politics. Rich shows the power and passion of the written word and the changes it is able to bring about. Passionately written and surprisingly easy to read.

Rich's collection of essays on poetry, WHAT IS FOUND THERE, is a superb tapestry of provocative, incisive, and relevant ruminations on poetry. What I really liked about this book is Rich's ability to connect poetry to one's everyday life, not describing it as something to be read by an elite, educated few.() Still, this book moved me and, as a student of poetry, I am inspired and hopeful that poetry and the discussion of it still thrives, contrary to many predictions.

Poetry illumines human spirits and inspires action. I'm still browsing, for each essay is rich and thought-provoking. The notebook presents literature and literary criticism as avenues for needed social change, through affirmation of exquisite experience of life in specific areas of America's cultures.

If you are a fan of Adrienne Rich, then this is a must-read. She explores life and struggle through the medium of prose and poetry.
