Item description for Muriel Rukeyser: Selected Poems (American Poets Project) by Muriel Rukeyser, Adrienne Cecile Rich, Nicolas, Barry Scott & Charles R. Kesler...
Overview The poet, translator, and political activist is given full expression through poems selected by Adrienne Rich that feature musings on politics, geography, sexuality, and mythology, as well as observations of her own life.
Publishers Description Muriel Rukeyser (1913A-80) published her first bookA-the powerfully experimental Theory of FlightA-at age twenty-two, and went on to an adventurous and prolific career as poet, translator, and political activist. Her expansive energies sought a poetry in which politics, geography, sexuality, mythology, and autobiography could find fused and fluid expression. From her early, brilliantly cinematic A"Poem Out of ChildhoodA" through excerpts from her long wartime A"Letter to the FrontA" to her late A"Resurrection of the Right Side,A" written after her stroke, this selection represents the many sides and selves of a major poet.
