Ruth Stone's Vast Library of the Female Mind


Free Admission

Presented by the University of Arizona Poetry Center. With director Nora Jacobson in person!

After tragedy strikes, acclaimed poet Ruth Stone (National Book Award, Wallace Stevens Award, National Book Critics Circle Award, Delmore Schwartz Award, two Guggenheim Fellowships) retreated to the margins of the literary world, working tirelessly to provide for her children, and transforming her intense grief into poetry, using simple, startling language. Using a conversational, intimate approach, award-winning Vermont filmmaker Nora Jacobson combines archival footage of Ruth at different times of her life, animation by her granddaughter Bianca Stone, and heartfelt observations by family members and poets, including Sharon Olds, Toi Derricotte, Major Jackson and Edward Hirsch. (Dir. by Nora Jacobson, 2021, USA, 77 mins., Not Rated)
