In this collection of prose writings, one of America's foremost poets and feminist theorists reflects upon themes that have shaped her life and work.

At issue are the politics of language; the uses of scholarship; and the topics of racism, history, and motherhood among others called forth by Rich as "part of the effort to define a female consciousness which is political, aesthetic, and erotic, and which refuses to be included or contained in the culture of passivity."

i only bought this book because i had to for one of my courses. i should have just checked one out from the library. this book is about a lesbian feminist and all her writings and opinions are outdated, with the most recent prose being written in 1978. my advice is do not waste your money

Adrienne Cecile Rich (born 1929) is an American poet, essayist and lesbian feminist. She wrote many other books, such as Of Woman Born. This collection of her prose is arranged chronologically.

Here are some quotations from the book:

"No male writer has written primarily or even largely for women, or with the sense of women's criticism as a consideration when he chooses his materials, his theme, his language. But to a lesser or greater extent, every women writer has written for men even when... she was supposed to be addressing women." (Pg. 37-38)
"The university is likewise a replica of the patriarchal family. The male teacher may have a genuine 'fatherly' relation to his gifted student-daughter, and many intellectual women have been encouraged and trained by their gifted fathers, or gifted male teachers... If she succeeds, it is partly that she has succeeded in pleasing HIM, winning his masculine interest and attention." (Pg. 139)
"Men have been expected to tell the truth about facts, not about feelings. They have not been expectd to talk about feelings at all." (Pg. 186)
"(Love) is a process, delicate, violent, often terrifying to both persons involved, a process of refining the truths they can tell to each other." (Pg. 188)
"She may say, 'I didn't want to cause pain.' What she really did not want is to have to deal with the other's pain. The lie is a short-cut through another's personality." (Pg. 192)
"...the dawning hope that women AND men may one day experience forms of love and parenthood, identity and community that will not be drenched in lies, secrets, and silence." (Pg. 197)
"Much male fear of feminism is infantilism---the longing to remain the mother's son, to possess a woman who exists purely for him." (Pg. 221)
"We must remember that we have been penalized, vilified, and mocked, not for hating men but for loving women. The meaning of our love for women is what we have constantly to expand." (Pg. 229-230)
"If it is dangerous for me to walk home late of an evening from the library, because I am a woman and can be raped, how self-possessed, how exuberant can I feel as I sit working at that library?" (Pg. 242)
Sorry, I haven't read this in ~30 years but the poetry in this book was coming back to me today, in my musing re: relationships between women and, wondering what the impact of having, as women, to lie so much might do to our psyches? Well, by lying here, I mean via objectification and internalization of that. Need to get more copies of her poetry -- remember her seeming so masterful a poet.
