Essays on Art in Society, 1997-2008

Adrienne Rich (Author)


“Adrienne Rich is the Blake of American letters.”—Nadine Gordimer

Across more than three decades Adrienne Rich’s essays have been praised for their lucidity, courage, and range of concerns. In A Human Eye, Rich examines a diverse selection of writings and their place in past and present social disorders and transformations. Beyond literary theories, she explores from many angles how the arts of language have acted on and been shaped by their creators’ worlds.
