  3. The riches of Adrienne Rich: Poet 1929 - 2012

    jaktraks:

    WASHINGTON, March 29th, 2012 - Although we may not agree with the words they choose, some poets are obviously doing their best to make people stare at things that need staring at. Adrienne Rich was such a poet.  

    She put it best herself. “Still, as a poet, I choose to sieve up old, sunken words, heave them, dripping with silt, turn them over, and bring them into the air of the present. Where every public decision has to be justified in the scales of corporate profits, poetry unsettles these apparently self-evident propositions—not through ideology, but by its very presence and ways of being, its embodiment of states of longing and desire.” (from What is Found There: Notebooks on Poetry & Poetics.)

 ”because, through his condensed, translucent images, he gives us fresh access to reality”

Tranströmer suffered from a stroke in the 1990s which led to that he became paralyzed on his right side and left him unable to speak, even though this he continued writing until 2004 when he retired. He is also a pianist and his writings does sometimes refers to music, since the stroke he have been playing piano with one hand.
