Here is Adrienne Rich. I've carried this book around in my bag until the pages are torn and the cover is rubbed away. I've given this book away with small scraps of paper tucked in as bookmarks with favorite lines written out on them. Here is one: The Fact of the Doorframe "means there is something to hold onto with both hands."

Picked by Jess in Fort Greene

— From Staff Picks


The Fact of a Doorframe is the ideal introduction to Rich's opus, from her formative lyricism in A Change of Word (1951), to the groundbreaking poems of Diving into the Wreck (1973), to the searching voice of Fox (2001).
