About the Author

Susan Harris is a writer from Cork in Ireland. An avid reader, she quickly grew to love books in the supernatural/fantasy genre. When she is not writing or reading, she loves music, oriental cultures, tattoos, anything Disney and psychology. If she wasn't a writer she would love to be a FBI profiler or a PA for Dave Grohl or Jared Leto. Susan Harris is the author of Shattered Memories.
Ilya Kaminsky was born in Odessa, Ukraine, and currently lives in San Diego. He's the author of Dancing In Odessa, and the co-editor of The Ecco Anthology of International Poetry. With Jean Valentine, he has co-translated Dark Elderberry Branch: Poems of Marina Tsvetaeva.


"It is a modern book of wonders, of airy correspondences and earthly dialogues, of faraway voices and unlikely global encounters, of borders magically crossed and deaths transfigured, of candles lighting each other, like souls. It is inexhaustible."--Edward Hirsch
"An incomparable collection of poets whose work has bever been fully available in English....The reader is given a sense of the entire twentieth century. Kaminsky and Harris have done a first-rate job of bringing a literal world of poets together."--Ploughshares
"The Ecco Anthology of International Poetry is essential reading.....There's no shortage of marvelous new voices to discover. Spanning generations, cultures and countries, this is truly a landmark publication-and it's a good gift for the poetry lover in your life, even if that person is you."--Newsday
"In this highly readable anthology, Kaminsky, one of his generation's finest poets, and Harris, the editorial director of Words Without Borders, aim to expand literary citizenship -- and succeed elegantly."--The Barnes & Noble Review
"I suspect there are not many collections (if any) like The Ecco Anthology of International Poetry. Gathered within its pages are some of the finest poems from around the planet written in the 20th century."--The Morning News
"From canonical modernists like Valéry, Vallejo and Pasternak to younger poets of today, the Ecco Anthology collects an amazing spectrum of poetic voices from around the world in gifted translations, often by other well-known poets. It becomes immediately indispensable."--John Ashbery
"This brilliantly assembled gathering of world voices reads as a symphony of utterance beginning to end, an international conversation of the highest order, regarding the questions and concerns of humankind, beyond borders and all other such barriers, real or imagined."--Carolyn Forché
