waiting for Icarus

voice of the poet

essay

 

Bold Type's Poetry Editor Ernest Hilbert writes on Rukeyser: "She wrote generously outside of the poetry world, publishing a novel, plays, film scripts, translations, children's books, and three biographies (she was also generous within the poetry world, publishing no fewer than eighteen collections of poems). She gave the feminist movement one of its most potent slogans: 'No More Masks'."

Listen to Rukeyser read 'Waiting for Icarus' and read an essay on the Five American Women Voice of the Poet recordings.
