mon 17 jan 8pm: jane hirshfield: reading & in-conversation (free online event)

Next guest in our US poets’ #poetrymonday reading/interview series (with poet & critic Cahal Dallat) is New-York-born poet, essayist, and translator Jane Hirshfield, an ‘eloquent and exacting’ poet according to Kay Ryan.

Author of nine poetry collections, Hirshfield has been praised by Nobel-Prize-winner Czesław Miłosz for her ‘profound empathy for the suffering of all living beings’: & Judith Kitchen has written on how Hirshfield’s poems ‘negotiate the difficulty of living while, at the same time, paying homage to what life has to offer’.

Hirshfield has long explored the poetry/science relationship (including as artist-in-residence at a Univ. California neuroscience program), an intersection that takes on new global/climate-crisis urgency in her just-launched latest collection Ledger (Penguin, Fall 2021).
