About the Author

Ivan Arguelles is one of this century's foremost surrealist poets. Born in Minnesota of Mexican and Anglo parentage (his father was a "communista" who knew Leon Trotsky personally), Ivan lived throughout the United States before settling in Berkeley, California. A polyglot and classicist, Arguelles manages to convey in his work a magical combination of surpassing reality and an almost eerie symbolism. His many books include FRAGMENTS FROM A GONE WORLD (Luna Bisonte Prods, 2017), DUO POEMATA: ILION - A TRANSCRIPTION & ALTERTUMWISSENSCHAFT (Luna Bisonte Prods, 2015), FIAT LUX (Luna Bisonte Prods, 2014), ARS POETICA (Poetry Hotel Press, 2013), A DAY IN THE SUN, ULTERIOR VISION(S), THE DEATH OF STALIN: SELECTED EARLY POEMS 1978-1989 (The Before Columbus Foundation American Book Award, 2011), The Invention of Spain, LOOKING FOR MARY LOU: ILLEGAL SYNTAX (William Carlos Williams Award, 1989), "THAT" GODDESS, MADONNA SEPTET (2 vols.), INFERNO, and COMEDY, DIVINE, THE. Arguelles is founder and co-editor of Pantograph Press.
