MORE ABOUT THE READERS
Mariela Griffor's new book is a translation of Pablo Neruda's Canto General: Song of the Americas, edited by Jeffrey Levine, perhaps Neruda's most daring and ambitious project, depicting history as a vast, continuous struggle against oppression. Griffor was born in Concepción in southern Chile. She left Chile for an involuntary exile in Sweden and now lives in the U.S., in Michigan and Washington D.C., where she is Honorary Consul of Chile. She is the founder of Marick Press and is the author of three books of poems, Exiliana, House, and The Psychiatrist.
Lynne Knight's new book of poems is The Persistence of Longing. Cecilia Woloch says, "I've never read poems that seem to me more accurate about love and desire and sexual relationships and their almost-inevitable shattering—darkly gorgeous and expertly-crafted poems, with a white-hot lyric intensity and a narrative pull that becomes cumulative, an erotic veering toward doom." She is the author of four full-length poetry collections and four chapbooks, and translator of I Know (Je sais), by Ito Naga, from the French. Among her honors are publication in Best American Poetry, the Prix de l'Alliance Française 2006, the 2009 Rattle Poetry Prize, a Poetry Society of America Lucille Medwick Memorial Award, and a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
