Richard Berengarten (aka Richard Burns) was born in London in 1943. The author of more than twenty books, Berengarten has been something of a maverick in contemporary British poetry. Two of his books are regarded as contemporary classics: "The Manager" and "The Blue Butterfly," an elegy for victims of a Nazi massacre in former Yugoslavia. A book of essays about his work, "The Salt Companion to Richard Berergarten," has recently appeared. He is a Bye-Fellow at Downing College, Cambridge. This is his first reading in the Bay Area in almost twenty years. (#22619)
