About the Author

Cid (Sidney) Corman (June 29, 1924 - March 12, 2004) was an American poet, translator and editor, most notably of Origin, who was a key figure in the history of American poetry in the second half of the 20th century. He lived most of his life in Kyoto, Japan.


"Poems a fortiori, poems with the shock of rightness-Cid Corman's poems. The look of delicacy is deceptive. More often it's leanness, poems growing from their own center-no influences, no formal props-then taking us back to that center by the shortest route. There, at center, leanness & rightness become song, an intensity of meaning that makes words pure. We know we have experienced real poetry because we have been where poetry really is..." -- Hayden Carruth
