Rothenberg and Joris in the stacks

Jerry Rothenberg and Pierre Joris at Poets House yesterday (11/6/10), where Jerry read from and analyzed Romantic and post-Romantic verse, not just Blake and Shelley, in other words, but Dickinson and Rimbaud as well as several contemporary poets, including writers of sound poetry, visual poetry, etc. Pierre was Jerry's co-editor for two earlier volumes of Poems for the Millenium.
