Keith Waldrop

As Ron Silliman points out in his blog post in response to Keith Waldrop’s 2009 National Book Award: “Keith Waldrop is a wonderful writer […] and a beautiful human being, one of the true good guys of poetry, who has spent a lifetime building resources for the poem in every way conceivable.”

Waldrop’s writing technique is mainly collage. He uses other texts to create his poems, which are at once philosophical and personal, and is able to link romantic tendencies with formal experimentation. As A.L. Nielsen has said of Waldrop’s poetry: “Keith Waldrop has concerned himself with the topology of the world of writing more consistently and valuably than any poet I can think of since the late Paul Celan.“

In addition to his numerous books of poetry, Waldrop has also published two longer prose books – most recently his autobiography Light While There Is Light (1993), and translated the works of Claude Royet-Journoud, Anne-Marie Albiach, and Edmond Jabès. He has been named Chevalier des arts et des lettres by the French government for his lifetime contribution to the French literature in 2000. With his wife Rosmarie Waldrop he edits the Burning Deck Press and has taught at Brown University since 1968.
