MORE ABOUT THE READERS
This reading will be a celebration for Eye of Witness: A Jerome Rothenberg Reader, edited by the author in collaboration with Heriberto Yépez. One of the great spirits of our poetry, whose books of poems include Poems for the Game of Silence, Poland/1931, That Dada Strain, Vienna Blood. Khurbn & Other Poems, The Lorca Variations, and many more; who virtually created ethnopoetics in the process of editing such anthologies as Technicians of the Sacred, Shaking the Pumpkin, Symposium of the Whole, and many more; one of the guiding masters of the avant-garde, both in his own writing and through the editing of such anthologies as Revolution of the Word and Poems for the Millennium, Jerome Rothenberg has been one of the most staggeringly productive and profoundly generous of our poets, reaching out across time and national borders to bring poetries together and to unite poetry with other arts. Indeed, as he says in his “Pre-face,” “The work-and-life, as Heriberto Yépez and I present it here, traces on its poetics side a line from deep image to ethnopoetics to a poetry of witness (as I still struggle to define it), and to the idea of an omnipoetics that hopes to bring it all together.”
