About this title


The collected poems of 20th century woman writer Jean Rubin.

About the Author:

Jean Rubin was born in New York City in 1928. She received a B.A. from Smith College in 1948 and an M.A. from Columbia University in 1957, both degrees in English. Also in 1957, a manuscript of her poems was a finalist in the Yale Younger Poets competition.

In 1963 her poem, “Theme and Variations,” was co-winner of a Robert Frost Award from the Poetry Society of America.

In 1976, she created for the composer, Robert Hall Lewis, a text that he used to structure his “Combinazioni III for Oboe/English Horn, Percussion, and Narrator.” This was subsequently performed in Carnegie Hall's Weill Recital Hall in New York City, and also at Goucher College and Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore.

She held various jobs in New York and San Francisco until she came to Baltimore in 1962 to join the faculty of the Maryland Institute, College of Art, where she taught writing and Literature until she retired in 1990. She still lives in Baltimore.

At about the age of nine, she came across a photograph of the Taj Mahal. She had already spent a summer in Belgium, and now knew that she would have to go to India. In 1965, she did so, on her way from England to Japan-she had made earlier voyages to several European countries and would do so again, afterward.
