He’s known for his highly original and acclaimed anthologies, as well as for his own work. “No one writing poetry today has dug deeper into the roots of poetry,” wrote Kenneth Rexroth (the “Godfather” of the Beats). Rothenberg has published about seventy volumes of poetry, often in collaboration with other artists. He’s a true international poet with a career spanning more than half a century. *** POLAND/1931 is “the first installment of an ongoing series of ancestral poems begun in 1956”. Some of the poems have previously appeared elsewhere.
