CALLER AND OTHER PIECES

Tom Raworth was born and grew up in London. During the 1970s he traveled and worked in the United states and Mexico, returning to England in 1977 to be Resident Poet at King's College, Cambridge, in which city he still lives. Since 1966 he has published more than 40 books and pamphlets of poetry, prose and translations, in several countries including ACE, ETERNAL SECTIONS, TOTTERING STATE: SELECTED EARLY POEMS 1963-1983, and CLEAN AND WELL LIT: SELECTED POEMS 1987-1995. His graphic work has been shown in France, Italy, and the United States, and he has collaborated and performed with musicians (Steve Lacy, Joëlle Léandre, Steve Nelson-Raney, Esther Roth, Nino Locatelli), painters (Giovanni D'Agostino, Micaëla Henich), and other poets (Franco Beltrametti, Corrado Costa, Dario Villa). In 1991 he was invited to teach at the University of Cape Town: the first European writer to visit there for thirty years. Raworth's COLLECTED POEMS was published by Carcanet in 2003.
