The Other Room 21, 1st December 2010
The readings from the anthology were eye-opening – a wonderfully funny extract from Clare’s letters about city folk thinking every bird they hear at night must be a nightingale, some of the extracts from late Holderlin, some Issa haiku that seemed to largely involve pissing and frogs…
Some tasters for our three readers. In addition there will be readings by all three poets, Jeffrey Robinson and The Other Room of a selection of poem from Poems for Millennium Volume 3. Videos of O’Sullivan and Fisher can be found in the middle left column. Please note that this event starts at 6pm and is at THE INTERNATIONAL ANTHONY BURGESS FOUNDATION
Jerome Rothenberg is the author of over seventy books of poetry including Poems for the Game of Silence, Poland/1931, A Seneca Journal, Vienna Blood, That Dada Strain, New Selected Poems 1970-1985, Khurbn, and most recently, A Paradise of Poets and A Book of Witness (all from New Directions). Describing his poetry career as “an ongoing attempt to reinterpret the poetic past from the point of view of the present,” he has also edited seven major assemblages of traditional and contemporary poetry.
