Poetics & Polemics

“The significance of Jerome Rothenberg’s animating spirit looms larger every year. . . . [He] is the ultimate ‘hyphenated’ poet:
critic-anthropologist-editor-anthologist-performer- teacher-translator, to each of which he brings an unbridled exuberance and an innovator’s insistence on transforming a given state of affairs.” — Charles Bernstein
