The Guardian has been late to the party with coverage of Adrianne Rich’s death. Their story today largely summarises and links to other reports but ends with this great quote from Rich:
In 2006, Rich wrote in the Guardian that “poetry has the capacity to remind us of something we are forbidden to see. A forgotten future: a still uncreated site whose moral architecture is founded not on ownership and dispossession, the subjection of women, outcast and tribe, but on the continuous redefining of freedom – that word now held under house arrest by the rhetoric of the ‘free’ market.”
This is an example of a bookmark post, because I have already covered Rich’s death in several posts – simple comparative comment style, analytic style, and simple follow-up style – I just bookmark this new article with a short quote and very little commentary.
