Jerome Rothenberg is the author of over sixty books of poetry, most recently Seedings and A Paradise of Poets from New Directions. An early pioneer of ethnopoetics and of various forms of performance poetry, he is the assembler of Technicians of the Sacred and six other experimental and traditional anthologies, including the recent Poems for the Millennium from University of California Press. His translations of the past decade include books by Schwitters, Picasso, Nezval, and Lorca. Future projects include a book of selected translations and related writings for Wesleyan University Press and an anthology of writings from Alcheringa, the magagazine of ethnopoetics that he co-edited with Dennis Tedlock, for Granary Books. He is the recipient of three PEN writing awards and an American Book Award for Pre-Faces, a volume of his collected essays.
