She died yesterday, Tuesday, March 27 at her home in Santa Cruz, CA due to complications from rheumatoid arthritis, according to her son. You can read any article about her passing online, but I recommend this one, which gives an overview of Rich’s life.

And here’s a little something to enjoy.

Adrienne Rich is probably known best for her poem “Diving into the Wreck” among others.
