9780393346008: The Dream of a Common Language: Poems 1974-1977

“Certain lines had become like incantations to me, words I’d chanted to myself through sorrow and confusion” ―Cheryl Strayed, Wild

The Dream of a Common Language explores the contours of a woman’s heart and mind in language for everybody―language whose plainness, laughter, questions and nobility everyone can respond to. . . . No one is writing better or more needed verse than this.”―Boston Evening Globe

About the Author:

Widely read, widely anthologized, widely interviewed, and widely taught, Adrienne Rich (1929–2012) was for decades among the most influential writers of the feminist movement and one of the best-known American public intellectuals. She wrote two dozen volumes of poetry and more than a half-dozen of prose. Her constellation of honors includes a National Book Award for poetry for Tonight, No Poetry Will Serve, a MacArthur Foundation “genius” grant in 1994, and a National Book Award for poetry in 1974 for Diving Into the Wreck. That volume, published in 1973, is considered her masterwork. Ms. Rich’s other volumes of poetry include The Dream of a Common Language, A Wild Patience Has Taken Me This Far, An Atlas of the Difficult World, The School Among the Ruins, and Telephone Ringing in the Labyrinth. Her prose includes the essay collections On Lies, Secrets, and Silence; Blood, Bread, and Poetry; an influential essay, “Compulsory Heterosexuality and Lesbian Existence,” and the nonfiction book Of Woman Born, which examines the institution of motherhood as a socio-historic construct. In 2006, Rich was awarded the Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters by the National Book Foundation. In 2010, she was honored with The Griffin Trust for Excellence in Poetry's Lifetime Recognition Award.

Review:

"The Dream of a Common Language explores the contours of a woman's heart and mind in language for everybody - language whose plainness, laughter, questions and nobility everyone can respond to... No one is writing better or more needed verse than this." Boston Evening Globe
