The School Among the Ruins : Poems 2000-2004
Rich confronts dislocations and upheavals in the United States at the beginning of the 21st century. The title poem, in a young schoolteacher's voice, evokes the lessons that children learn amid violence and hatred.
- National Book Critics Circle Awards
Art and conviction have always mixed well in Rich's work-which is some accomplishment-but her recent Fox: Poems 1999-2000 seemed perhaps a bit mellower. With her newest collection, winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award, she's back in fighting form, decrying the "school among the ruins" in Baghdad and other calamities of the 21st century.
