Collected Poems: 1950–2012

The New York Times has called Adrienne Rich's poetry "distinguished by an unswerving progressive vision and a dazzling, empathic ferocity." One of the most influential poets of her generation, she led poetic discussions of gender, race, and class and pushed formal and societal boundaries with her writing. Collected Poems: 1950–2012 contains her entire body of poetry, from her debut collection Change of World (Yale University Press, 1951) to Tonight No Poetry Will Serve: Poems, 20072010 (W. W. Norton, 2011).
