NINE GATES ENTERING THE MIND OF POETRYby Jane Hirshfield b 1953 American author and poetReview by Jamie Dedes The Poet by Day An award winning author and poet Jane Hirshfield has published seven collections of poetry in addition to Nine Gates Entering the Mind of Poetry a collection of essays Her most recent book of poetry is Come Thief August 2011 In collaboration with Mariko Aratoni Hirshfield edited and translated four volumes of poetry by women of ancient JapanMs Hirshfield is a Zen Buddhist and her practice informs her work with spiritual insight and delicate nuance She has said It is my hope that the experience of that practice underlies and informs my poetry as a whole My feeling is that the paths of poetry and of meditation are closely linked one is an attentiveness and awareness that exists in language the other an attentiveness and awareness that exists in silence but each is a way to attempt to penetrate experience thoroughly to its core The Poetry FoundationNine Gates Entering the Mind of Poetry September 1998 is a series of nine essays that were written by Jane Hirshfield over a ten year period and published or presented at poetry eventsGates are a means of exit and entrance providing connection between the inner and the outer The premise of Hirshfield s book is that the art of poetry is the gate by which we are offered mysterious informing Nine Gates is at once a primer for the reader and a manual for the writer This is a book that is reverent of art artist and life All is sacred groundThe book begins at the beginning the root of poetry concentration By concentration I mean a particular state of awareness penetrating unified and focused yet also permeable and open As she says this is Huxley s doors to perception and James Joyce s epiphany It is what I would call sacred space and this focus this concentration however laborious becomes a labor of love In this chapter I particularly appreciated the short discussion of voice writers whose ear is turned to both the inner and outer have found their voice and thus are able to put their uniue and recognizable stamp upon their workThe book closes with Writing and the Threshold Life and a discussion of the space into which a writer withdraws liminal space The writer she tells us becomes like the monk giving up identity and assumptions The person in liminal state leaves behind his or her identity and dwells in the threshold state of ambiguity openness and indeterminacy This is all rather like the person going through a ritual transitions Only after transition to this liminal space neither here nor there is community wholeheartedly embraced To see clearly and to embrace the whole without judgment one has to be free of the standard cannon and the received wisdom The idea being that the creative life is one that gives up the ordinary conventions which is the price of freedomEncased between the two portals of concentration and the threshold life are discussions of originality translation what we learn from the poetry and linguistic traditions of others word leaves images indirection the mind of the poet circles the poem inward and outward looking the shadow side of poetry between the realms of heaven and hell and poetry as a vessel of remembrance The book s range is broad using poets and their wisdom from ancient times to modern and from East to West The essays are at once a delicate lace and a sturdy practical homespun All is approached with respect clarity and intelligence Each chapter is a gentle nudge toward authenticity greater truth deeper spirituality In her introduction Jane Hirshfield says that because the essays were written at different times some themes and uotes are repeated and removing the repetitions proved impossible I felt the repetitions served to reinforce I was grateful for them If I have any difficulty with this book it was the conflict between not wanting to put it down and wanting to put it down to start writing in the spirit of entering the mind of poetry A definite thumbs up on this one Essay 2011 Jamie Dedes all rights reservedCover art publisher posted under fair use
