EYE OF WITNESS : Jerome Rothenberg & Heriberto Yépez

+ Attending

As a celebration of Eye of Witness: A Jerome Rothenberg Reader, Jerome Rothenberg and co-editor Heriberto Yépez will lead a launch & reading covering fifty years of Rothenberg’s work as poet, translator, editor and performer.  As Geoffrey O’Brien has written: “Jerome Rothenberg has done as much as anyone over the past half century to shake up received ideas of what poems ought to be like.” And Michael McClure: “Jerome Rothenberg is a DNA  spaceman, exploring the mammal caves of Now.”

            Heriberto Yépez, now resident in the Bay Area, is a leading Mexican poet, writer, and literary and intellectual provocateur.  For nearly two decades now his writings have been breaching borders, bringing us a new and sharp intelligence that is Mexican at its core and international in its direction.
