Appearing at the end of her life, this final collection from the National Book Award winning author of Diving into the Wreck surveys a remarkable body of work. These are Adrienne Rich's own selections from twelve published volumes, including An Atlas of the Difficult World and Tonight No Poetry Will Serve, along with ten new poems. Among these, "From Strata" is a kind of archaeology of the present day, while "Itinerary" searches for an "indefinite future" in a menaced landscape, and the haunting voice of "Teethsucking Bird" reminds us of what we have been told to forget.
Later Poems: Selected and New, 1971-2012
