Bu çalışmada Adrienne Rich\'in şiirlerinden olan “Diving into the Wreck” (1973) adlı şiiri eko feminist eleştiri bağlamında incelenmektedir. Rich\'in doğa şiirleri, kadın tarafsızlığını ve bilincini, ata erkil suistimalini ve önem vermeme varsayımlarını sorgular. Şiirdeki androjen (çift cinsiyetli) karakter “ben” ile birlikte Rich, dişi öznelliğine yer verebilmek için toplumsal cinsiyet ve cinsiyet sınırlarının ötesine gider. Şiirdeki karakter dişi kimliğini ve cinselliğini mecazi bir şekilde deniz altı batığına “dalarak” ve deniz altı hayatını keşfederek ifade etmeye başlar. Kişi doğaya kaçar; çünkü hem doğa hem de kadınlar tahrip edici kuvvetler tarafından sömürülmektedir.
This study examines Adrienne Rich\'s poem “Diving into the Wreck” (1973) through ecofeminist criticism. Rich\'s ecopoetry questions assumptions about feminine subjectivity and female consciousness, patriarchal abuse, and indifference regarding women. With the androgynous persona in the poem “I”, Rich moves beyond the limits of gender and sexes to give room to form female subjectivity. Persona in the poem starts to explore and express her feminine identity and sexuality by figuratively “diving” into a wreck and exploring an underwater world. The persona escapes to nature, because both nature and women are exploited by dominant destructive forces.
