John Williams Narins

John William Narins holds that author biographies should be deceptive. He is a translator of the misunderstood and a distorter of several world poetic traditions. His poetry has been called an analytic verse—if so, it is an “analytic” accommodating spontaneity, suggestion, enigma. John is a poet, scholar, musician, artist, fencer, instigator, player, smoker, wanderer, candlestick maker, marksman, thinker, practical joker, sleepwalker, peacemaker, and a hopeless model for emulation.
