“Well-versed and well-read in Sufi mysticism, Joris appears throughout these captivating meditations as a nomadizing poet-scholar—a poeta doctus in the classical sense: whether it is the manners, or pockets of the desert, Baghdad bombings, or Hallaj's set of stations that caught his eye (a poeta vates?) and fired up the engine of his writing, Joris—poeta faber—also always guides us back to the material flux of language that constitutes these meditations.”—Peter Cockelbergh

Pierre Joris has published over 40 books of poetry, essays and translations. Since 2008, he has lived with his wife, the performance artist and singer Nicole Peyrafitte, in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. Most recently, he is the author of MEDITATIONS ON THE STATIONS OF MANSUR AL-HALLAJ (Chax Press, 2013).
