Robert Grenier

Robert Grenier’s eleven books of poetry include Oakland (Tuumba Press, 1980), A Day at the Beach (Roof, 1984), Phantom Anthems (O Books, 1986), and OWL/ON/BOU/GH (Post-Apollo Press, 1997). Grenier’s recent "books" have been folios of haiku-like inscriptions or transcriptions. Examples of his current holograph poems can be seen at As Grenier puts it, "that materiality’s ‘relation to’/invocation of/’invention’ and attempted embodiment /’clarification’ of ‘other matters’." Join us as he reads and shows slides of his recent poems.
