Jonathan Aaron

Jonathan Aaron is the author of three poetry collections: Second Sight, Corridor, and Journey to the Lost City. His poems, essays and reviews have appeared in many publications, including The Paris Review, The Times Literary Supplement, The New Yorker, and in several Best American Poems anthologies. He is currently an associate professor at Emerson College. I actually had him for a workshop last semester and really enjoyed reading the poetry he recommended; it’s stuff that might not be assigned in poetry classes otherwise, a lot of work in translation and just a lot of work by writers who aren’t usually taught but are certainly worth reading.
