Rob Fitterman will be appearing on ceptuetics tonight to read from his new manuscript "Rob the Plagiarist" and talk to me about his poetry. Rob teaches at NYU and has been a great influence and friend since I took a course with him last year, so I'm very happy to have him as my first guest. Tune in tonight at 7:30-8:00 EST, as always.
Robert Fitterman is the author of nine books of poetry, including three installments of his ongoing poem Metropolis: Metropolis 1-15 (Sun & Moon Press, 2000), Metropolis 16-29 (Coach House Books, 2002), and Metropolis XXX: The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire (Edge Books, 2004). Earlier titles include Leases (Periphery Press), among the cynics (Singing Horse Press) and Ameresque (Buck Downs Books). His most recent title, War, the musical, is a collaboration with artist Dirk Rowntree. He teaches at New York University in both the General Studies Program and the Department of English, and also the writing faculty at the Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts, Bard College.
