Interview with Adrienne Rich

1986

Adrienne Cecile Rich (May 16, 1929 – March 27, 2012) was an American poet, essayist and feminist. She was called “one of the most widely read and influential poets of the second half of the 20th century”,[1][2] and was credited with bringing “the oppression of women and lesbians to the forefront of poetic discourse.”[3]

Her first collection of poetry, A Change of World, was selected by the senior poet W. H. Auden for the Yale Series of Younger Poets Award; she went on to write the introduction to the published volume. Rich famously declined the National Medal of Arts, protesting theUnited States House of Representatives and Speaker Gingrich‘s vote to end funding for the National Endowment for the Arts.
