So sorry for your loss. Her poetic voice will be missed. A legacy of strength and inspiration she leaves for us. May she rest in peace.

Adrienne Rich, was a light to many in the historical sense of justice and observation. She was a poet first,however, and as poet, like all artists their work is about communication. Her words distilled and exposed much of the contentions of a women's authentic "soul".

Poetry has the uncanny ability to see into the values of the era in which the Poet lived. But Adrienne Rich
had the genius to not only comment but transcend to the common face of human beings, where gender dissolves into the the more powerful "Truth".

It was a painful life, but took all in...One of her greatest poems was "The Door" Here is wisdom and truth, all in a few words.

Thank you poet Rich for your, life and your shared gifts....we know an artists life is not easy and worth every struggle and effort to herself and community.

As I recorded my first song, I was unaware that day of the death of Adrienne Rich. My song was about women's issues, and I credit her work and the work of many such women in giving me the resources for my education as a self-taught women's historian. Thank you for your 'Rich' body of work and art that will live on in all of us. You lived up to your name and give new definition to the word 'Rich'. Peace be with you and your loved ones--

I celebrate you, Adrienne Rich. Your language showed me the way to my own power and gave me company with others. My sympathy to your loved ones and my thanks to you.
