UM: Adrienne Rich

Following the death of poet Adrienne Rich, National Public Radio interviews Linda Gregerson, a poet, critic and University of Michigan professor: “I remember when I first encountered Adrienne’s work and it was when I was a student at the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, and the fierceness of her intelligence and the power of her anger, her willingness to speak it directly, was really an amazing revelation, I think, for many of us. … And she’s been a stirring and necessary and really life-changing figure for many, many in the world of American poetry, not just women poets.” [Source]
