Anthony, Jane Addams, Emily Dickinson, and tries to release them from ''unspeakable loneliness. In a poem for Ethel Rosenberg, who was executed for treason the week the poet was married, Adrienne Rich writes: ''If I have held her at arm's length till now if I have still believed it was my loyalty, my punishment at stake if I dare imagine her surviving I must be fair to what she must have lived through I must allow her to be at last political in her ways not in mine her urgencies perhaps impervious to mine.

They're the kind of poems that keep you up late at night and then enter your dreams. In recent years, Miss Rich's candor has made it easy for those who are so inclined to label her. And, of course, polemical, which is often used as a euphemism for the first two labels. But it would be a shame to cordon her off.
Because she is a poet trying to see deeply, think clearly and speak plainly about our lives - our past, our prospects. As a self-consciously American poet, Adrienne Rich is - cannot help but be - a daughter of Emerson and Whitman. Like them, she is half-crazy with dreams of Self-Reliance, Transcendence and Democracy.

And so, belatedly, she is unearthing foremothers, revising history to suit her needs, turning Elizabeth Cady Stanton into not an icon but a poet. Taking her 19thcentury words and putting them into brand-new verse. Whitman's barbaric yawp was for us all. So is Adrienne Rich's common language.
