Mirabai: Ecstatic Poems

Mirabai: Ecstatic Poems Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Like Coleman Barkss translations of Rumi, this collection of poems by Mirabai will appeal to anyone interested in spiritual poetry. Translator and renowned poet Robert Bly has teamed up with Jane Hirshfield, a leader in the field of feminine spiritual poetry, to bring us a passionate and inspiring collection of the ecstatic poems of a figure of legendary proportions.
Born in India in 1498, Mirabai celebrated both the body and the spirit in her work. By her death in 1550 she was a well-known and well-loved poet throughout her country. Now, Bly and Hirshfield brilliantly translate this sages work, so full of drama, passion, and yearning.
