The collected works of Adrienne Rich, whose poetry is “distinguished by an unswerving progressive vision and a dazzling, empathic ferocity” (New York Times). Adrienne Rich was the singular voice of her generation and one of our most important American poets. She brought discussions of gender, race, and class to the forefront of poetical discourse, pushing formal boundaries and consistently examining both self and society. This collected volume traces the evolution of her poetry, from her earliest work, which was formally exact and decorous, to her later work, which became increasingly radical in both its free-verse form and feminist and political content. The entire body of her poetry is on display in this vast volume, including the National Book Award–winning Diving Into the Wreck and her prize-winning Atlas of the Difficult World. The Collected Poems of Adrienne Rich gathers and memorializes all of her boldly political, formally ambitious, thoughtful, and lucid work, the whole of which makes her one of the most prolific and influential poets of our time.

This comprehensive volume contains all Sylvia Plath's mature poetry written from 1956 up to her death in 1963. The poems are drawn from the only collection Plath published while alive, The Colossus, as well as from posthumous collections Ariel, Crossing the Water and Winter Trees. The text is preceded by an introduction by Ted Hughes and followed by notes and comments on individual poems. There is also an appendix containing fifty poems from Sylvia Plath's juvenilia. This collection was awarded the 1981 Pulitzer Prize for poetry. 'For me, the most important literary event of 1981 has been the publication, eighteen years after her death, of Sylvia Plath's Collected Poems, confirming her as one of the most powerful and lavishly gifted poets of our time.' A. Alvarez in the Observer

Life through My Glasses, a new collection of poems by Herbert Siegel, combines two additional art forms for added dimension and meaning, resulting in a unique approach, more functional than poetic icons of earlier eras. Original paintings and illustrations allow book lovers to visualize the subject of a poem, and selectively inserted "call-outs"—used ubiquitously by journalists—engage the reader in the poet's choice of a formal structure or free verse. This, his fourth collection, presents a contemporaneously written continuum of life ensconced in many forms of poetry, including universal observations of nature, ancient storytellers, gastronomy, and biographies—usually ending with a touch of sardonic humor. "Life through My Glasses is beautiful ... an intriguing form combining poems in an unusual shape, comparing life and nature ... nature and resurrection ... life immortal. I cannot add or take away from this masterpiece." —Yvonne Byrd, 2006 Senior Poet Laureate of Texas "Life through My Glasses reads beautifully, Herb. It's a grand finale for your book ... a masterpiece." —Dr. Kim Gorman, University of Kentucky, University of Houston "I have to say I feel enriched and inspired having read through your work. Thank you so much!" —Andrea Strudensky, DLitt, faculty, Vanier College, Montreal, Quebec
