Women in praise of the sacred : 43 centuries of spiritual poetry by women( Book )

11 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 998 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This groundbreaking anthology presents the spiritual life of women throughout history as recorded in their poems, prayers, and songs. Beginning with the hymns of the world's earliest identified author (a Sumerian moon priestess) and continuing to the first half of the twentieth century, it draws from the major religious traditions of East and West as well as from several indigenous cultures. Among the seventy women included are mystics and healers, spiritual teachers and mothers, saints and rebels, freed slaves and queens, each of whom forged a unique way to an authentic voice and genuine spiritual awakening. Their words and stories and the editor's insightful commentaries illuminate fundamental themes of spiritual life that resonate across time, culture, and gender, as well as issues particular to women in their quest for a viable spiritual path

"Mirabai is a literary and spiritual figure of legendary proportions.

Their work makes it clear that Mirabai's poetry transcends her time and culture."--Jacket

The beauty by Jane Hirshfield( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jane Hirshfield is a visionary, profoundly original American writer whose poems ask nothing less than what it is to be human. Both sensual meditations and passionate investigations, they reveal complex truths in language luminous and precise. Rooted in the living world, her poems celebrate and elucidate a hard-won affirmation of our human fate. Born of a rigorous questioning of heart, spirit and mind, they have become indispensable to many American readers in navigating their own lives. Bloodaxe published her retrospective Each Happiness Ringed by Lions: Selected Poems in 2005, followed by After in 2006, a Poetry Book Society Choice which was shortlisted for the T.S. Eliot Prize, and then Come, Thief in 2011. Jane Hirshfield's latest collection, The Beauty, opens with a series of poems exploring both the profundities and the quirks of our shared human existence. She draws intimate meaning from multiple realms: science, culture, language itself, and above all the luminous materials and minutely particular emotions of daily life. In their robust negotiation with fate and justice, these clear and moving poems open a new and steepened understanding of our lives' full measure of losses, knowledge, and loves. 'Hirshfield's lucid poems are philosophical and sensuous, concise yet mysterious... Wittily deductive and metaphysically resplendent, Hirshfield's supple and knowing poems reflect her long view, her quest for balance, and her exuberant participation in the circle dance of existence' - Donna Seaman, Booklist, on Come, Thief
