Adrienne Rich

Adrienne Rich, an influential writer and supporting contributor for the feminist movement, died on Tuesday, March 27. Her poetry is described as “jagged and colloquial, sometimes purposefully shocking, always controlled in tone, diction and pacing,” in New York Times article, A Poet of Unswerving Vision at the Forefront of Feminism. Rich was born in Baltimore in 1929 and was encouraged at an early age to write poetry by her father who taught at Johns Hopkins University.
