Mark Eisner

Mark Eisner has spent most of the past two decades working on projects related to Pablo Neruda. His biography, Neruda: The Poet’s Calling (Ecco), was published earlier this year (now in Spanish from Harper Collins Español.) He conceived, edited, and was one of the principal translators for The Essential Neruda: Selected Poems (City Lights, 2004). He wrote the introduction to City Lights’ first ever English translation of Neruda’s venture of the infinite man, a project he developed. Eisner holds a BA in English and Creative Writing from the University of Michigan, and an MA in Latin American Studies from Stanford University. He was involved in the early stages of the Red Poppy Art House in San Francisco, and continues to help lead Red Poppy the literary-non profit, dedicated to promoting the power of Latin American poetry to shift social consciousness and spark both individual and collective change. They recently created a multilingual anthology of Latin American resistance poetry, which Eisner co-edited.
