WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Get to know the poet who forged a new language for sexuality and war politics for generations to come: Adrienne Rich. For Adrienne Rich, poetry was not intended to massage an egotistical dream of the aesthetic. She wrote to bring change into being, to break taboos and to challenge perceived truth. Hear from some of the voices who have been deeply inspired by Rich, the revolutionary poet still considered today as one of the most poignant voices behind the 1960's anti-war, feminist and LGBT rights movements. Featuring writer and academic Joanna Bourke and poet Mary Jean Chan.
