MYTHOLOGY FOR THE SOUL:
THE COLLECTED POEMS OF STORM DE HIRSCHE (2018)
Edited by Stephen Broomer
Storm De Hirsch (1912-2000), born Lillian Malkin, was a poet, filmmaker and mystic. Her writings appeared in December, the San Francisco Review, Intro Bulletin and Film Culture. Many of De Hirsch’s films have been preserved by the American Film Preservation Foundation and the Anthology Film Archives, and are distributed by the Film-Makers' Cooperative in New York City.
She began publishing poetry and art criticism in American little magazines in the 1950s; her poems are shamanistic, bearing properties of the magic ritual and incantation, and her mysticism as well as her passions for new forms led her in the visionary direction of the New American Cinema. Mythology for the Soul is the first comprehensive collection of Storm De Hirsch’s poetry.
