She was called “one of the most widely read and influential poets of the second half of the 20th century”, and was credited with bringing “the oppression of women and lesbians to the forefront of poetic discourse.” Rich criticized rigid forms of feminist identities, and valorized what she coined the “lesbian continuum,” which is a female continuum of solidarity and creativity that impacts and fills women’s lives.
