Jerome Rothenberg is an internationally celebrated poet, translator, anthologist, and performer with over ninety books of poetry and twelve assemblages of traditional and avant-garde poetry such as Technicians of the Sacred, Shaking the Pumpkin (traditional American Indian poetry); Exiled in the Word (a.k.a. A Big Jewish Book); and, with Pierre Joris and Jeffrey Robinson, Poems for the Millennium, volumes 1-3. His most recent books are Eye of Witness: A Jerome Rothenberg Reader (2013) and Barbaric Vast & Wild: Outside & Subterranean Poetry from Origins to Present (volume 5 of Poems for the Millennium, 2015). A significantly expanded fiftieth anniversary edition of Technicians of the Sacred has just been published by the University of California Press, and a new book of poems, A Field on Mars: Poems 2000-2015, was published last year in separate English and French editions.
