Adrienne Rich Has Died

Sad news.  One of the great 20th century American poets, Adrienne Rich, has died.  Few others matched her integrity, sense of vision and vocation, political concern, and ability as poet, writer and critic.  Her greatest work, for me, remains Diving Into The Wreck, of forty years ago.  As a young poet, that was a touchstone collection for me.  Her essays on poetry and politics were also inspirational.  The world has lost a major figure.
