What People are Saying About This

Carolyn G. Heilbrun

In An Atlas of the Difficult World Rich says: 'We write from the marrow of our bones.' So she has written since the 1960s, saying what we longed to say, but could not, or dared not. She is a crucial poet: each volume more courageous, newly elegant. In this book she makes me, even in these harsh times, brave, toughened by her boldness, her skill.
