Real Tin Flower, 1968
Aliki Barnstone was educated at Brown University (B.A. and M.A.) and
at the University of California, Berkeley (Ph.D.). Her volume of poems,
The Real Tin Flower , introduced by Anne Sexton
(Macmillan), was published when she was twelve years old. Her poems have
appeared in Poetry, New Letters, The New York Times, Ms.,
Agni, Chicago Review, The Antioch Review , and other journals, and she is
co-editor of the anthology A Book of Women Poets from
Antiquity to Now (Schocken/Random House). At present she is editing the
forthcoming volume, Voices of Light: Women's Spiritual
Poetry from around the World (Shambhala). She teaches at the University
of Nevada at Las Vegas. Gerald Stern has compared Barnstone's work to Emily
Dickinson's: "Not in the forms, not, as such, in the music, and not in the
references; but in that weird intimacy, that eerie closeness, that absolute
confession of soul. . . .In Barnstone (too) the two worlds are intensely
present, and the voice moves back and forth between them. She has the rare art
of distance and closeness. It gives her her fine music, her wisdom, her form.
She is a fine poet."
