In this book, one of America's foremost poets and feminist theorists collects her most important prose writings. This is an extraordinary sort of travel diary, documenting Rich's lifetime journeys to the frontier and into the interior. It traces the developments of one individual consciousness, "playing over such issues as motherhood, racism, history, poetry, the uses of scholarship, the politics of language." it "affirm the potentiality of a lesbian/feminism which extends the meaning of women's love for women to a political vision that touches every nerve ding of society." Since, by its nature, Rich's journey has not been linear, she has written a headnote for each essay, briefly discussing the circumstances of its writing. "I find in myself both severe and tender thoughts toward the women I have been, whose thoughts I find Here."
