Famous quotes by adrienne rich:

    We have seen over and over that white male historians in general have tended to dismiss any history they didn’t themselves write, on the grounds that it is unserious, unscholarly, a fad, too ‘political,’ ‘merely’ oral and thus unreliable.
    Adrienne Rich (b. 1929)

    The word ‘revolution’ itself has become not only a dead relic of Leftism, but a key to the deadendedness of male politics: the ‘revolution’ of a wheel which returns in the end to the same place; the ‘revolving door’ of a politics which has ‘liberated’ women only to use them, and only within the limits of male tolerance.
    Adrienne Rich (b. 1929)

    It is the lesbian in us who is creative, for the dutiful daughter of the fathers in us is only a hack.
    Adrienne Rich (b. 1929)

    Poetry is above all a concentration of the power of language, which is the power of our ultimate relationship to everything in the universe.
    Adrienne Rich (b. 1929)

    The mind’s passion is all for singling out.
    Obscurity has another tale to tell.
    Adrienne Rich (b. 1929)
