- In stock online
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.
