Jane Hirshfield is the rarest of rare birds: a splendid poet and a deeply learned, intelligent scholar.
The very title of her NINE GATES; ENTERING THE MIND OF POETRY, tells it all.
"The Mind of Poetry? Poetry is all heart! What's all this about the MIND of poetry?"
Well, Jane Hirshfield, a Soto Zen layman, knows that any world where heart and mind are separated will lead to spiritually consumptive consumer-society in which there are to be found no Sanatoriums on any magic mountain in which its malaise can be cured.
With a deep, powerful intellect and a splendidly tuneful heart combined in that most wonderful of mishmashes which is the human soul, she has no peers among the living.
We are most fortunate to have her.
