About Us

As this site grows, it will serve as a lively and comprehensive resource for reading, exploring, and teaching the poet Muriel Rukeyser’s multi-faceted work and broad range of interests, from poetry and the visual arts to religion, history, science, and technology. Let us know if you are interested in contributing to the site–for instance, by writing short essays about individual poems or submitting other original work on Muriel Rukeyser, including pedagogical resources.

We regularly feature many poems written by Rukeyser. With them, we provide and invite commentaries, related works, essays, and further resources.

The site is sponsored by EMU’s English Department. It has been created with the financial assistance of a grant from EMU’s Women in Philanthropy.
