Description
In this collection Adrienne Rich confronts dislocations and upheavals in the United States at the beginning of the 21st century. The title poem, in a young schoolteacher's voice, evokes the lessons that children learn amid violence and hatred, "when the whole town flinches / blood on the undersole thickening to glass." Her "Usonian Journals 2000" intercuts faces and conversations, building to a dystopian/utopian vision. Throughout these fierce and musical poems, Rich traces the imprint of a public crisis on individual experience: personal lives bent by collective realities, and language itself held to account. The winner of numerous major poetry prizes—including the Yale Younger Poets Award, the National Book Award for Poetry, the inaugural Ruth Lilly Poetry Prize, the Frost Medal, and the Lannan Lifetime Achievement Award—who also famously refused the National Medal of Arts in 1997, the late Adrienne Rich (1929–2012) was credited with bringing "the oppression of women and lesbians to the forefront of poetic discourse" (Guardian, London). These poems "get the fractured timbre of the times just right in a collection of vigorous lyric poems about the first four years of the 21st century, a period of terror, war, corporate imperialism, outrageous lies, and miasmal inarticulateness" (Booklist).
