Collected early poems, 1950-1970 by Adrienne Rich( Book )
25 editions published between 1993 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,271 libraries worldwide
With more than 700,000 copies of her books sold, Adrienne Rich's work is unequaled today in reclaiming serious poetry from scholars and returning it to the lives of general readers. Collected here for the first time are more than 200 poems: all those in her first six books plus a dozen others of those decades. From her first publication, when she was twenty-one, in the prestigious Yale Younger Poets series, the successive volumes of Rich's poems have both charted the growth of her own mind and vision, and mirrored our tempestuous, unsettled age. Her unmistakable voice, speaking even from the earliest poems with rare assurance and precision, wrestles with urgent questions while never failing to explore new poetic territory. This collection is a triumphant assertion of the centrality of poetry in our intertwined personal and political realms, and it confirms Rich's position among the enduring poets of our language
The school among the ruins : poems, 2000-2004 by Adrienne Rich( Book )
11 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 1,260 libraries worldwide
In this new collection Adrienne Rich confronts dislocations and upheavals in the United States at the beginning of the twenty-first century. The title poem, in a young schoolteacher's voice, evokes the lessons that children (Not of course here) learn amid violence and hatred, "when the whole town flinches/blood on the undersole thickening to glass." Usonian Journals 2000 intercuts faces and conversations, building to a dystopic/utopic vision. Throughout these fierce and musical poems, Rich traces the imprint of a public crisis on individual experience: personal lives bent by collective realities, language itself held to account

In these risky new poems, Rich dares to look and to extend her poetic language as witness to the treasures--the midnight salvage--rescued from fear and violence. Andrienne Rich's work has long challenged social plausibilities built on violence & demoralizing power. The poems in Midnight Salvage are risky, infused with the cruelty of history, the presence of the body, the beauty of the natural world, with human love & longing
Time's power : poems 1985-1988 by Adrienne Rich( Book )
20 editions published between 1989 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,158 libraries worldwide
For 30 years, Rich's poetry has revealed the individual personal life--sexualities, loves, damages, struggles--as inseparable from a wider social condition, a world with others, in which the empowering of the disempowered is increasingly the source of hope. Time's Power shows Rich writing with unprecedented range, complexity and authority
Fox : poems 1998-2000 by Adrienne Rich( Book )
9 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 1,112 libraries worldwide
In this new volume, Adrienne Rich pursues her signature themes and takes them further: the discourse between poetry and history, interlocutions within and across gender, dialogues between poets and visual artists, human damages and dignity, and the persistence of utopian visions. Here Rich continues taking the temperature of mind and body in her time in an intimate and yet commanding voice that resonates long after an initial reading. With two long exploratory poems ("Veteran's Day" and "Terza Rima") as framework, and the title poem as core, Fox is formidable and moving, fierce and passionate, and one of Rich's most powerful works to date
The will to change; poems 1968-1970 by Adrienne Rich( Book )
22 editions published between 1971 and 1972 in English and held by 963 libraries worldwide
Arts of the possible : essays and conversations by Adrienne Rich( Book )
10 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 959 libraries worldwide
"The essays in Arts of the Possible search for possibilities beyond a compromised, degraded system, seeking to imagine something else. They call on the fluidity of the imagination, from poetic vision to social justice, from the badlands of political demoralization to an art that might wound, that may open scars when engaged in its work, but will finally suture and not tear apart."--Jacket
Dark fields of the Republic : poems, 1991-1995 by Adrienne Rich( Book )
28 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 948 libraries worldwide
"When does a life bend toward freedom? grasp its direction?" asks Adrienne Rich in Dark Fields of the Republic, her major new work. Her explorations go to the heart of democracy and love, and the historical and present endangerment of both. The poems of Dark Fields of the Republic are a theater of voices: of men and women, the dead and the living, over time and across continents. Rich writes out of dreams and nightmares, conversations actual and imaginary, actions taken for better or for worse, out of histories and songs, humdrum and terrible events, the most intimate loves and love for the world

On lies, secrets, and silence : selected prose, 1966-1978 by Adrienne Rich( Book )
43 editions published between 1979 and 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 495 libraries worldwide
In this collection of prose writings, one of America's foremost poets and feminist theorists reflects upon themes that have shaped her life and work. At issue are the politics of language; the uses of scholarship; and the topics of racism, history, and motherhood among others called forth by Rich as "part of the effort to define a female consciousness which is political, aesthetic, and erotic, and which refuses to be included or contained in the culture of passivity." This impressive book is a collection of prose essays which analyze the major ideas and problems that have concerned Adrienne Rich over the last dozen years. Although most of the pieces have been previously published, their combination reveals subtle interconnections and mutual implications that would otherwise be difficult to notice. In addition, Rich has added introductions to most of the pieces which clarify, and sometimes quarrel with, various points she has made
