The Asking: New & Selected Poems
Jon Joseph in Conversation
with Poet Jane Hirshfield

Jane Hirshfield is an American poet, essayist, and translator. Hirshfield is also a Buddhist who received precepts at San Francisco Zen Center in 1979. Her poetry reflects immersion in a range of poetic traditions: Polish, Scandinavian, and Eastern European poets have been particularly important, along with the poetry of Japan and China.

Jane Hirshfield on asking:

The shift from fixity, assertion, and shouting into a spirit of asking and dialogue is itself the key. Asking turns the heart-gate from closed to open. What a gift, a life’s bi-directional Q&A with the immeasurable What-Is. My advice to young writers is often: “Open the window a little wider than you feel comfortable.” My advice in practice is to ask each thing, event, person you meet, “What is your teaching?”
