About this title


Winner of a 1982 Award of Literature from the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters

Of the handful of American poets who have made a contribution to the fields of fiction and literary criticism, Josephine Jacobsen has been one of the most widely acclaimed for the force and originality of her work. In The Chinese Insomniacs, a wholly new collection of her poetry, she reaches her highest level of intensity in poems about people, the landscape of dreams, and the nature of time. She shows us the common bonds of human beings from century to century with an empathetic intelligence that is rare in American letters today.

About the Author:

Jacobsen devoted her life to literature. When she died at 94, she left behind a legacy of a dozen books and many honors, including position as Consultant in Poetry to the Library of Congress, the 1988 Lenore Marshall Award, the 1993 Shelley Memorial Award, and the 1997 Poetry Society of America's Robert Frost Medal for Lifetime Achievement in Poetry.
