ABSTRACT
This article discusses about the poetry of Adrienne Rich. Adrienne Rich is one feminist poet who has persistently explored her own anger with a sensitivity and discipline which faces these issues and finds in them a source for self-discovery and an energy which creates and sustains a high level of poetry. Although the bulk of Rich criticism concentrates on her later poems, those included in "Diving into the Wreck." In her early poetry Rich also defines her role as a poet whose primary medium of social protest is language.
