This is a fifteen-minute excerpt from a fifty-four-minute event featuring Alan Bernheimer on multilingual poetics — on January 17, 2017, at the Kelly Writers House, in a series curated by Ariel Resnikoff. The excerpt features the session’s Q&A.
Alan Bernheimer responds to questions about his translation of Philippe Soupault’s, Lost Profiles: A Memoir of Cubism, Dada, and Surrealism, which was published in November by City Lights. The book is a retrospective of a crucial period in modernism, written by a co-founder of the Surrealist movement. The video below is a fifteen-minute excerpt from a fifty-four-minute-long program held at the Kelly Writers House on January 17, 2017.
When Alan Bernheimer hosted Bill Berkson on the In the American Tree radio program, September 7, 1979, Berkson read eleven poems, including “Duchamp Dream,” and “Camera Ready Like a Dream.” Although this recording has been available through PennSound for several years, only today have we had a chance to sort out the poems he read on that occasion, and to segment them. Go to PennSound's Bill Berkson page for links to these poems, and more.
