The poems and essays of the American writer, public intellectual and activist Adrienne Rich (1929-2012) are known in several countries, in­cluding Italy. The main focus of Rich's early writing is the need to create "a common world of women" on the basis of women choosing women as "passionate comrades, life partners, co-workers, lovers, community", which in Rich's own case became at public choice of lesbianism. Later on, her radical politics and her Jewishness became as significant as her feminism and her lesbianism. A secular, progressive Jewishness - retrieved in the 1980s - is central in the autobiographical list of components of her identity which concludes her essay Split at the Root.
