An Evening of Poetry

Distinguished Visiting Fellow in the College of Creative Studies

“An evocative mix of control and wildness, stunning beauty and unseen forces.” The Christian Science Monitor

Award-winning poet and translator Jane Hirshfield elegantly speaks to the core issues of existence in her poetry — desire and loss, impermanence and beauty and our multi-faceted connections with others. An intimate, profound and generous master of her art, she has written six collections of poetry, including After (named a best book of 2006 by The Washington Post); Given Sugar, Given Salt (a National Book Critics Circle Award finalist) and The October Palace, as well as a classic book of essays, Nine Gates: Entering the Mind of Poetry. Her most recent poetry collection, Come, Thief, was published in August 2011.
