This is an interview I did with poet Jane Hirshfield, broadcast on Between the Covers on November 10, 2011. Ms. Hirshfield is an award-winning poet and translator Jane Hirshfield and the author of seven collections of poetry, including After (HarperCollins, 2006); Given Sugar, Given Salt (2001), which was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award, The Lives of the Heart (1997), The October Palace (1994), Of Gravity & Angels (1988), and Alaya(1982). In 2004, Hirshfield was awarded the 70th Academy Fellowship for distinguished poetic achievement by The Academy of American Poets.
In this interview, I talk with her about her most recent collection of poetry entitled, Come, Thief (Alfred A. Knopf, 2011). Listen to her interview here.
