Jane Hirshfield

Jane Hirshfield reads her poems and chats with Ryan at her home in California, where she has often been influenced by whatever is at hand. In a wide ranging discussion, Jane discusses what inspires her to write, her thoughts on politics, solitude, spirituality, strangeness in poetry, and translation. Jane will appear at the Scottish Poetry Library on 13th April 2012.
