Clayton Eshleman has been at the heart of American poetry since the early 1960s. During his long career he has published more than 40 books, including most recently the poetry collection Anticline. In 2008, Black Widow Press in Boston brought out a 630 page Clayton Eshleman Reader, The Grindstone of Rapport, collecting 40 years of his poetry, prose, and translations. His poetry and work on poets as important and diverse as Cesar Vallejo, Aime Cesaire, Pablo Neruda, Antonin Artaud, Vladimir Holan, Henri Michaux, and Bernard Bador have earned him international acclaim, including a U.S. National Book Award, a Guggenheim Fellowship, numerous grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities, and two Landon Translation Prizes from the Academy of American Poets. He was the founder and editor of two of the most important literary journals in the latter half of the 20th century, Caterpillar and Sulfur. Eshleman lives in Ypsilanti, Michigan, and is a Professor Emeritus at Eastern Michigan University. More information can be found at his website:
