A Muriel Rukeyser Reader

27 September 1995


A Muriel Rukeyser Reader gathers a generous selection of poetry and prose spanning the forty-five years of Rukeyser's writing life.

Bringing together works only sparsely anthologized or long out of print, this book is a resource for understanding the range, depth, and originality of this pioneering writer whom the poet Anne Sexton named "Muriel, mother of everyone."


"A visionary poet . . . Muriel Rukeyser speaks to us today in the name of courage, full consciousness, and the making of connections. This is a life-giving collection." — Jane Cooper

"One of the most important poets of our time. . . . Her originality, her genius, her courage illuminate our century." — Sharon Olds
