Associated with her contemporaries Adrienne Rich, Sylvia Plath, and close friend, Anne Sexton, Kumin worked as an essayist, children's author, and fiction writer, but is best known for her straightforward and unflinching poetic verse that covered a range topics from skinny-dipping with William Wordsworth to her own recovery from a near fatal accident.
