The Village Beyond

Nobuko Kimura

About the Poet

Kimura Nobuko, who was born in 1936, has created a unique poetic world solidly anchored in both dreams and reality. As she once put it, for her “a dream is not just a set of images but an actual experience.” In her signature pieces the sense of absurdity reminiscent of Ionesco achieves a strong sense of realism and rationality. She has published six books of poems “for adult,” as she jokingly notes, and five books of poems for children.
