http://lunchpoems.berkeley.edu/ Richard Berengarten (aka Richard Burns) was born in London in 1943. George Szirtes described him as "one of the major half-hidden poets of England". 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 will be his first reading in the Bay Area in almost twenty years.
