Kosrof Chantikian

Author's Bio

I am the author of two books of poems: Imaginations & Self Discoveries, and Prophecies & Transformations, and editor of Octavio Paz: Homage to the Poet, and The Other Shore: 100 Poems by Rafael Alberti. My poems have appeared in Grey Sparrow Journal, Verse Wisconsin, Amerus, Ginosko, Green House, and other journals. I was editor of KOSMOS: A Journal of Poetry, and general editor of the KOSMOS Modern Poets in Translation Series. My essay on Octavio Paz entitled "The Poetry and Thought of Octavio Paz: An Introduction” appeared in Octavio Paz: Homage to the Poet (KOSMOS Books), and was reprinted in Octavio Paz edited by Harold Bloom (Chelsea House). I have received grants from the National Foundation for the Arts, the California Arts Council, and the San Francisco Foundation, and was poet-in-residence at the San Francisco Public Library.
