Rachel Hadas

Rachel Hadas is a poet, professor, essayist and translator.

She is the author of numerous books of poetry, essays, and translations. Most recent publications include [poetry] The River of Forgetfulness (2006); Laws (2004); Indelible (2001); Halfway Down the Hall: New & Selected Poems (1998) -- a finalist for the 1999 Lenore Marshall Poetry Prize; The Empty Bed (1995); The Double Legacy (1995); Mirrors of Astonishment (1992); and Living in Time (1990).

Earlier this week I asked her what she was reading. Her reply:
I am rereading Trollope's Can You Forgive Her?; reading Marcus Aurelius's Meditations in a wonderful new translation by Martin Hammond; and have just finished Lore Segal's new Shakespeare's Kitchen.

Since I am preparing to teach 2 workshops & also engaged in contest-judging, those tasks take care of my poetry reading for the time being.
