About the Author

Jack Spicer (1925-1965) was a poet and linguist born in Los Angeles, California. At the University of California, Berkeley, he became close friends with the poets Robin Blaser and Robert Duncan, and with them he went on to play a central role in the San Francisco Renaissance of the late 1940s and the 1950s. During his life, Spicer published six short books of poetry, all with small, local presses. He died of alcohol poisoning in the poverty ward of San Francisco General Hospital.

Peter Gizzi is the author of many collections of poetry, most recently Now It's Dark and Archeophonics (a finalist for the 2016 National Book Award). His editing projects have included The House That Jack Built: The Collected Lectures of Jack Spicer and, with Kevin Killian, My Vocabulary Did This to Me: The Collected Poetry of Jack Spicer. He works at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.
