Poetry. Anselm Berrigan's eighth collection of poems, SOMETHING FOR EVERYBODY, is exactly as its title describes. Wide-ranging in forms, densities, and aesthetics—and written from numerous collaborations, prompts, and influences—these poems express poetry's astonishing possibilities. At the same time, they evince this singular poet's consciousness in the here and now, as a family and community member looking at the seams of public life.
Anselm Berrigan is the editor of WHAT IS POETRY? (JUST KIDDING, I KNOW YOU KNOW): INTERVIEWS FROM THE POETRY PROJECT NEWSLETTER (1983-2009), and is the author of many books of poetry, most recently SOMETHING FOR EVERYBODY, COME IN ALONE, and PRIMITIVE STATE. From 2003 to 2007 he was Artistic Director of The Poetry Project at St. Mark's Church. He is Co-Chair, Writing at the Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts interdisciplinary MFA program and also teaches part- time at Brooklyn College.Author City: NEW YORK, NY USA
