hirshfield

This is the second part of a series I am devoting to Jane Hirshfield, one of the most prominent American poets of today. Besides her poetry, Hirshfield has edited several anthologies. The Ink Dark Moon: Love Poems by Ono no Komachi and Izumi Shikibu, Women of the Ancient Court of Japan, an early work from 1990, is a series of translations from the Japanese with co-translator Mariko Aratani and Women in Praise of the Sacred: 43 Centuries of Spiritual Poetry by Women is an anthology of women writers from 2300 B.C. to the twentieth century, writers of various spiritual traditions. Both of these collections are attempts to make more widely known the works of historical women poets whose work has often been neglected and marginalized. They are attempts to contradict the lingering myth that women throughout history have not written significant poetry.

My next post in this series will be March 3.
