Sad news

I'm sorry to report the death of Adrienne Rich, the great poet, critic, and feminist theorist. She was 82, and died from the complications of rheumatoid arthritis. Her work-- all of it-- exerted a tremendous influence on my thinking, even as her poetry not only moved me emotionally, but also provoked moments of recognition and realization that changed me forever. I'll try to write a proper appreciation of her and her work in the near future.
