Award-winning poet, essayist, and translator Jane Hirshfield is our guest this week. Jane reads from her work, and shares the body, heart and mind that informs her deceptively clear-eyed, attentive poetry, asking why ‘how happy we are, how unhappy we are, doesn’t matter’. And Ryan offers some more ‘poetry sparks’ to nourish your own ideas.
Listeners to The Line Break can also join the The Line Break group on CAMPUS, the Poetry School’s free online community for poets.
I loved the interview so much it inspired me to write a new poem.
I am a big fan of Jane’s translated work’s, Thoroughly enjoyed the podcast and now have to hunt down her own stuff. Cheers
That’s great to hear Raina! Maybe post it up in Show Us Your Poems…?
Brilliant podcast and just read on the ‘Poem-a-day’ site her poem February 29 – an extra day etc…all very inspiring. Ann
