"When the cultural and intellectual history of our time is written, Robert Bly will be recognized as the catalyst for a sweeping cultural revolution."
- Psychologist Robert Moore

Since the 1960s, Robert Bly has written poetry based in the natural world, the visionary, and the realm of the irrational. As a poet, editor and translator, Bly has profoundly affected American verse, introducing many unknown European and South American poets to new readers.  He has changed global literature forever by translating and bringing world literature to U.S. readers for 60 years. He has opened the doors of experience, insight, and language, lifting them toward a universal understanding of what poetry means in the lives of people throughout the world.  Among his 40 books of poetry are The Light Around the Body, Silence In the Snowy Fields, Meditations on the Insatiable Soul, and My Sentence Was a Thousand Years of Joy. His prose works include  Iron John, Talking All Morning, and The Sibling Society.

About Talking into the Ear of a Donkey:
"This consummately beautiful and moving book carries the craft, wisdom, and gleaming image-hoard of a lifetime master. Robert Bly's signature gifts leap from every page: extravagant freedoms; embrace of mystery; astonishment; the twin pole stars of wild-won instruction and profound acceptance; and, always, always, the unshakable love Bly holds for this spinning globe and all who share it." - Jane Hirshfield

Nils Peterson taught in the English and Humanities Departments at San Jose State University from 1963 to 1999. He has published widely and was nominated for a 2005 Pushcart Prize.  Bruce Hamm and Jim Santi Owen are widely loved and deeply respected Bay Area musicians.
