Talking About Adrienne Rich on the Radio

Earlier this month, I had the pleasure of discussing the life and work of poet and activist Adrienne Rich with Michael Enright on CBC Radio's The Sunday Edition. You can listen to the segment, excerpted from the CBC podcast of the show, by clicking on the player below.



I have continued to read and reread Rich's awe-inspiring body of work in the intervening weeks, and I expect I'll post some reflections on particular poems and essays, and more broadly on her intertwining of poetry and politics, here soon.

Very interesting broadcast! You've certainly whetted my interest in the work of Adrienne Rich.

Yes, please do continue posting about Rich. As writers, we have no better example of integrity in the profession.

I read her poetry in college and wondered if I still had a copy -- your blog had me into old boxes in the attic -- I found it! Thanks for reminding me of a source for strengthening my resolve.
