A landmark work of LBGT+ literature, The Dream of a Common Language was poet Adrienne Rich’s first published collection after she came out as a lesbian in 1976.

Divided into three parts – Power, Twenty-One Love Poems and Not Somewhere Else, But Here – it explores the need for a shared understanding across barriers of gender and sexuality that recognises feminist ideals and women’s right to a voice.

Ranging across topics from sexual expression to thought-provoking examination of the cultures that refuse to recognise homosexual love, it’s a moving, ground-breaking work that challenges the status quo and writes a roadmap for a different kind of future.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Certain lines had become like incantations to me, words I'd chanted to myself through sorrow and confusion.' - Cheryl Strayed, Wild

'The Dream of a Common Language explores the contours of a woman's heart and mind in language for everybody - language whose plainness, laughter, questions and nobility everyone can respond to... No one is writing better or more needed verse than this.' - Boston Evening Globe
