A reading by Anselm Hollo introduced by Tom Raworth
Anselm Hollo, poet and literary translator, was born in Helsinki, Finland in 1934. After prolonged sojourns in Sweden, Germany, Austria and England, he moved to the United States and has lived there for thirty-nine years. Since 1989, he has been on the core faculty of the graduate writing and poetics program of Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado, where he lives with his wife, visual artist Jane Dalrymple-Hollo. He is the author of more than thirty books, not including his literary translations. His work has been widely anthologised and translated into Finnish, French, German, Swedish, and Hungarian. He is the recipient of numerous literary awards in both the United States and his native Finland.
His latest book, _Braided River: New and Selected Poems 1965-2005_, has just been published by Salt (Cambridge).
