Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"One of our most radically original poets." —Anne Waldman

Sotère Torregian, an American poet of Ethiopian, Arabic, Greek, Armenian, and Moorish ancestry, approaches the world with an open-armed embrace of distant and diverse phenomena. His surreal lyricism infuses observations of politics, popular culture, and the everyday with generosity, absurdity, and a spirit of adventure.

Born in Newark, New Jersey, Sotère Torregian has taught at the Free University of New York, Santa Clara University, and Stanford University, where he helped establish the Afro-American studies program in 1969. He teaches at the University of the Pacific and resides in Stockton, California.

Synopsis:

This rediscovered New York School poet reveals a unique poetry marked by a very contemporary multicultural, polylinguistic style.

About the Author

Born in Newark, New Jersey, Sotère Torregian is an American poet of Ethiopian, Arabic, Greek, Armenian, and Moorish ancestry. After attending Rutgers University, he taught at the Free University of New York, Santa Clara University, and Stanford University, where he helped establish the Afro-American studies program in 1969. In the mid-1960s he was associated with the New York School of poets. At that time he proposed a kind of American “orthodox Surrealism,” based on “reinterpretations of surrealist stands on Revolutionary perspectives in art, poetry, and theology.” He currently teaches at the University of the Pacific and resides in Stockton, California.
