    The poem is about her living with the knowledge that she would not get to see her mother again. She wanted nothing to do with anything that seemed to involve the women's movement.

    In addition to public tours and a lecture series, the building will be the site of writing workshops for high school students, inspiring a new generation of writers to engage their attentions as Bishop did.
