  • Is Poetry A Social Act
    1,447 words
    Is poetry a social act rather than an isolated object? Is poetry meant to be shared with others, or meant for the individual?

This is the genre within which she is writing and, as Walker has so ably demonstrated, she employs many of the same themes and images her fellow women poets use. But Dickinson took up these themes with a difference. As Adrienne Rich asserts, for Dick...
