  • Yerra Sugarman

Extract

Since the 1960s, Marilyn Hacker has written poetry visionary in the openness of its discourse and innovative in its invigoration of traditional forms to illuminate new freedoms. Her works represent the marginalized and the exigencies—sexual, social, political, moral—of our time. A major voice, she deploys her diverse passions in poems that are influential contributions to feminist, lesbian, and general literature, teaching us that new rights engender abiding responsibilities.
