rich admiration

i would like to humbly extend my sincerest congrats to adrienne rich for winning a national book award, the medal for distinguished contribution to american letters.

ms. rich is a brilliant and enduring poet. in fact, this is not the first time she has won a prize from the national book foundation: she won the national book award for poetry in 1974. in (more) fact, she won the yale younger poets prize for her first book of poetry the year she graduated from college.

that's a poetry role model if ever i heard one.
