Power

Power

by Adrienne Rich

Analysis: Tough-o-Meter

3 (Base Camp)

"Power" isn't the easiest poem on the planet to understand, but it's not the hardest, either. Lucky for you, we've provided you with the scoop on Marie Curie in the "In A Nutshell" section of the study guide, and that should make reading the poem oodles easier.

But if you've still got some lingering questions about the poem after getting familiar with our pal Marie, don't worry. "Power" actually raises a whole lot more questions than it answers. So get comfy dwelling in uncertainties and ambiguities, and read on.
