Poetry. ACE, complete! This reprint of one of Raworth's most well-received works includes "Bolivia: Another End of Ace," as well as drawings by Barry Hall only seen in the very limited British edition. In the early 1970s Ted Berrigan wrote of him: "When I read the best of Tom Raworth's poems, I feel proud. They are a human accomplishment, a poet's." Raworth is the author of over 40 books including MEADOW, CLEAN & WELL LIT: SELECTED POEMS 1987-1995, Eternal Sections, and The Relation Ship. Of his selected early poems, TOTTERING STATE, Lyn Hejinian has written "These are among the greatest writings of our times."
Tom Raworth was born and grew up in London. During the 1970s he traveled and worked in the United states and Mexico, returning to England in 1977 to be Resident Poet at King's College, Cambridge, in which city he lived for many years. Since 1966 he has published more than 40 books and pamphlets of poetry, prose and translations, in several countries. His graphic work has been shown in France, Italy, and the United States, and he has collaborated and performed with musicians (Steve Lacy, Joëlle Léandre, Steve Nelson-Raney, Esther Roth, Nino Locatelli), painters (Giovanni D'Agostino, Micaëla Henich), and other poets (Franco Beltrametti, Corrado Costa, Dario Villa). In 1991 he was invited to teach at the University of Cape Town: the first European writer to visit there for thirty years. Raworth now lives in Hove, East Sussex.Author City: East Sussex UNK
