Author: David Rosenberg

David Rosenberg is the author and editor of more than twenty books, including volumes of contemporary writers on the movies, the Bible, and the Holocaust. While finishing A Literary Bible he studied the context for ancient biography, leading to a diptych: Abraham: The First Historical Biography (2006) and An Educated Man: A Dual Biography of Moses and Jesus (2010). His breakthrough poetry of blues epistles, Frontal Nudity (1972), was illustrated by George Schneeman paintings of poet colleagues including Anne Waldman and Ron Padgett. It was immediately followed by Blues of the Sky, psalms. He continues to publish critical essays on poetry, as well as his long poem, The Lost Book of Paradise (1993) and a literary version of the Kabbalah, Dreams of Being Eaten Alive (2000). Rosenberg's newest book is a layered memoir of a poet's education, A LIFE IN A POEM (Shearsman Books, 2019). He has taught creative writing most recently at Princeton.
