"Mirabai, who wrote in Rajasthani, became part of the renewal of ecstatic religious life in North India in the sixteenth century. When her husband was killed in a war, she was about twenty-seven and decided to leave the compund: she did, writing her poems, composing the music for them, and dancing them. Her husband's family insisted she made a bad bargain. Mirabai answers them in It's True I Went To The Market. Robert Bly." Ex-libris Rosalie Sorrels, American folk singer-songwriter who resides in the mountains of Idaho.
