Webinar - Are you an echo? With TraNslator David Jacobson

Tuesday, December 11, 2018 from 7:00 PM TO 8:00 PM

Virtual online event

Learn about the once forgotten poet, Misuzu Kaneko, in this online webinar led by translator David Jacobson. In the 1920's, Misuzu Kaneko gained attention for the sincerity and empathy of her poetry. Despite her success as a poet, she experienced personal tradgedy and committed suicide in her late twenties. Her lifetime work of 512 poems was rediscovered in 1982. She became one of Japan's best-loved children's poets. The inclusion of her poem "Are You an Echo?" in a public service announcement after the 2011 earthquake and tsunami made her instantly famous.
