About the Author

Paul Celan was born in Czernowitz, Bukovina, in 1920, and is widely considered to be one of the most innovative poets of the twentieth century. A German-speaking Jew, he was sent to a forced labor camp during World War II. Celan settled in Paris in 1948, where he lived and wrote until his death in 1970. His books include Poppy and Memory and From Threshold to Threshold.
Poet, editor, and translator Pierre Joris was born in Strasbourg, France and raised in the town of Ettelbruck, Luxembourg. He has lived throughout the United States, Europe, and North Africa. From 1992 to 2013, Joris taught at SUNY, Albany. Joris is the author of numerous collections of poetry, including Poasis: Selected Poems 1986-1999 (Wesleyan University Press, 2001), Aljibar (Editions PHI, 2007), Aljibar II (Editions PHI, 2008), Meditations on the Stations of Mansur Al-Hallaj (Chax Press, 2013), Barzakh: Poems 2000-2012 (Black Widow Press, 2014) and An American Suite (2016). He is also author of two volumes of essays, A Nomad Poetics (Wesleyan University Press, 2003) and Justifying the Margins: Essays 1990-2006 (Salt Publishing, 2009). Joris lives in Brooklyn with his wife, the performance artist Nicole Peyrafitte.
