For The Love Of Wisdom – Adrienne Rich – Poets

Adrienne Rich (May 16, 1929–March 27, 2012)

I have been a poet of the oppositional imagination, meaning that I don’t think my only argument is with myself. My work is for people who want to imagine and claim wider horizons and carry on about them into the night, rather than rehearse the landlocked details of personal quandaries or the price for which the house next door just sold.
