More about the readers
Rose Black's newest book of poems is Winter Light. David St. John says of it, "Rose Black is a remarkable and heartbreaking poet. Her meditations on the passages of experience and the psychological resonances of childhood are compelling and powerful…" Both of her books of poems—the first is Clearing—are prose poetry. Her poetry has appeared in Runes, South Carolina Review, Wisconsin Review, Ninth Letter, Spillway and Slant. She is Associate Editor of the Marin Poetry Center Anthology.

Daniel Joseph Polikoff will be reading from his two books of poetry, Dragon Ship and The Hands of Stars. He is also the author of a new critical biography, In the Image of Orpheus: Rilke: A Soul History, a book that blends archetypal psychology and biography with an in-depth reading of Rilke's poetry and prose, drawing on such sources as psychologists Jung and James Hillman, Plato, Petrarch, Lou Andreas-Salomé, and many more. Polikoff has also published a dramatic version of the Grail legend, Parzival/Gawain: Two Plays, an edited translation of Der Gral, by A.M. Miller.
