He has translated Rilke’s Sonnets to Orpheus and often teaches in China, where he has worked with peasant artists and helped introduce dissident poets to an American audience. For over thirty years he taught at Beloit College and helped edit the Beloit Poetry Journal. His Selected Poems will be published in May.
