Adrienne Rich Is Dead

Posted on March 29, 2012


I read the news this morning via Twitter.  I discovered Rich during one of my school’s reading weeks. Her writing was very unrelated to the reading list I should have been tackling but I had decided to spend my time reading Lesbian Feminist authors. I have probably read “Compulsory Heterosexuality and the Lesbian Existence”  about 7 times and I enjoyed many of her other essays and poems.  Adrienne Rich’s writing influenced my thinking in many ways. I’m grateful for a chance to have known of her and about her work. Riese from Autostraddle has written a fantastic tribute that includes a bit more on Adrienne’s history and her work. You can read it here.
