Brooks Haxton    


 

Bold Type's Poetry Editor Ernest Hilbert writes that "Brooks Haxton is in the enviable position of being as well-known as a poet as a translator, particularly from the French of Victor Hugo and the immensely difficult ancient Greek of Heraclitus. Given roots thrust thus deeply, it is immediately remarkable to the sensible reader how difficult it has become to detect influence of classical styles and forms in Haxton's poems. Such seeds as have been gathered from ancient groves are so deeply lain that they are imperceptible."

Read a poem from Haxton's collection Nakedness, Death, and the Number Zero and an essay on Brooks Haxton.
