Sinopsis: While most contemporary poets seek refuge in the comfortable confines of academia, Todd Temkin has undertaken a journey in the opposite direction. These startling poems bridge an inspiring arch from the poet's early days as a graduate student at the University of Minnesota, following a golden thread that lead him halfway across the world to the historic seaport of Valparaiso, Chile, where Mr. Temkin's work as a civic activist would attract attention the world over.
In the hands of a lesser poet, the odyssey from suburban Milwaukee to the complex urban landscape of Valparaiso may seem anecdotal, but Temkin's poems--rich in intimate detail--transform the journey into something luminous and thrilling.
About the Author: Born in Milwaukee in 1964, Todd Temkin graduated from the Writer's Workshop at the University of Minnesota before accepting a job as Associate Professor of Contemporary North American Poetry at the Catholic University of Valparaiso, Chile. Hypnotized by the endearing urban chaos of Chile's historic seaport, Temkin resigned his academic post to create the Fundación Valparaíso, a non-profit foundation dedicated to promoting the rebirth of the city as a cultural heritage city. The foundation gained world attention for dozens of innovative projects ranging from urban renewal to the fomenting of the arts. In 2003, Valparaiso was declared a UNESCO world heritage preservation site. For his role in this process, Mr. Temkin has twice been nominated "Person of the Year" by the regional press and named "Honorary Architect" by the Chilean National Society of Architects. His poems have appeared in a wide variety of literary magazines, both in Latin America and the United States. He lives in Valparaiso with his wife and two children.
