Biographical Note

Pamela White Hadas was born in Holland, Michigan and received her Bachelor, Master and Doctoral degrees from Washington University in St. Louis. She has published four collections of poetry: Passion of Lilith (1976), Designing Women (1979), In Light of Genesis (1980) and Beside Herself (1983) as well as a book of criticism, Marianne Moore: Poet of Affection (1977).

Hadas' poems employ the dramatic voice of monologue and often function as performance pieces as well as poems. She is recognized for her skill in developing the voice of historic, unusual women, as evidenced particularly in Designing Women and Beside Herself. She has written plays, a libretto, and has co-translated Chekhov's Three Sisters.
