In another of my ongoing collaborative efforts with community arts organizations, this week Bibliocracy features a recording of poet and translator Daniel Tiffany’s recent reading at Casa Romantica, part of that terrific Orange County-based outfit’s monthly Poetry Series. Tiffany is widely published, and teaches at USC. His first book of poetry, Puppet Wardrobe, appeared in 2006 from Parlor Press. He has published translations of works by Sophocles, Georges Bataille, and the Italian poet, Cesare Pavese. His critical works include Toy Medium: Materialism and Modern Lyric, named one of the "Best Books of 2000" by the Los Angeles Times Book Review. His poetry, which has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize, has appeared in Tin House, Boston Review, Volt, The Germ, Colorado Review, Denver Quarterly, and the Paris Review. He has held residencies at the MacDowell Colony and the Karolyi Foundation in France and been the recipient of a Whiting Fellowship. His most recent poetry project, "The Dandelion Clock," was set to music by the composer Daniel Rothman and installed at the Interface New Music Festival in Berlin in 2007. Tiffany lives in Venice, California and teaches at the University of Southern California.
