    One thought on “Midnight Salvage”

    1. Imagine a city where nothing sforgiven your deed adheresto you like a scar, a tattoo but almost everything sforgotten a city memory starved but intent on retributionsImagine the architecture the governancethe men and the women in power tell me if it is not true you still live in that city.

    2. I ve been making my way backwards through all of Rich s collections there was a poetry sale I bought everything I could find , so this is the fifth I ve read, and the first that really floored me Some truly beautiful lines, both small A life hauls itself uphill and grand if a woman as vivid as any artist can fling any day herself from the 14th floor would it relieve you to decide Poetry doesn t make this happen The star of the collection, though, is the last poem, A Long Conversation, running ne [...]

    3. At the end of the century approached, Rich found herself gazing at a world in which the sense of decay, of loss, pervaded everything And yes, it would get worse In the last section of the title poem, she muses on Old walls the pride of architects collapsing find us in crazed niches sleeping like foxes we wanters we unwanted we wanted for the crime of being ourselves Both the identification with the fox, which would provide the title of her next book, and the sense of seeking a place within a col [...]

    4. The poems I could make sense of, I liked all right I can t remember the title of the memorial poem for a Latin American photographer whose name also escapes me , but I liked that poem Mostly, I found her political poems tended to border on the boring trite, and her personal poems tended to require untangling work than I felt like giving them This is the only book of Rich s poetry I ve read I have found her theory specifically her classic essay Compulsory Heterosexuality and Lesbian Existence f [...]

    5. I heard Rich read from this collection The auditorium was so quiet as she read Her voice was powerful Her words were powerful on their own I can still hear her voice when I read her poems I have the poems that she read from this collection marked.

    6. There are some really stunning lines in these poems, a lot of experimentation I must admit I don t understand every thing Adrienne Rich does with her poetry.cially the use of and in her poems, but I m looking forward to giving these poems a second read to delve deeper into them.

    7. This book contains vivid, dreamlike images, and a consistent voice throughout There are not many poems that stand out as individuals, though.

    8. This is my favorite of Rich s late books, one I have gone back to many times for what it teaches me and what its poems can teach my students.

    9. I think a couple of these were read in an ambien fog, so I m going to go back and pore over this again Also because each poem is multi layered and, I suspect, too smart for me in a good way.
