Robert Bly is the author of the groundbreaking New York Times bestseller Iron John: A Book About Men, as well as several collections of original poetry, most recently, The Night Abraham Called to the Stars: Poems. He has translated numerous poets into English, including Kabir, Pablo Neruda, Cesar Vallejo, Juan Ramon Jimenez and Frederico Garcia Lorca.

Mirabai is a legendary literary and spiritual figure. Born a princess in Rajasthan in 1498, Mira (as she is more commonly known) eschewed the marriage her royal family had arranged for her, celebrating instead her right to independence and intense devotion to Krishna in both her life and poetry. In this collection, two acclaimed poets, Robert Bly and Jane Hirshfield, have created lively English versions of Mirabai?s poems, using fresh images and energetic rhythms to make them accessible to modern readers.
