Geoffrey Brock

 

GEOFFREY BROCK’s translations of the great Italian writer Cesare Pavese’s last poems, Disaffections: Complete poems 1930-1950, won the PEN Center USA Translation Award, and many other honors. Rosanna Warren hailed them as “true poems in English: poems that have the density, the grit, the obdurate presentness hewn from silence for which Pavese fought so hard in Italian.” A Stegner Fellow at Stanford University, Brock will also read his own poems, which have appeared widely in journals.
