Celebrating the great Charles Reznikoff.

As Bernstein writes – (on the occasion of the re-publication of the “definitive edition” of his poems, back in 2005) – “The Poems of Charles Reznikoff is necessary reading for anyone interested in 20th-century American poetry. Reznikoff’s astonishingly engaging and quietly powerful work has been steadily gaining a passionate following.”

That following continued – and is continuing.  Read his work.
