About the Author:

H.R. HAYS was a poet, translator, novelist and playwright, an historian of anthropology and zoology, and a teacher. Several of his twenty-two books, reflecting the diversity of his interests, were the pioneering works in their fields. William Carlos Williams, Marianne Moore, Robert Bly and David Ignatow praised his poetry. His translations of Brecht, Vallejo, Borges, Neruda, and many others were among the first to bring these major twentieth century writers to he attention of the English-speaking world. His plays, such as The Ballad of Davy Crockett, with music by Kurt Weill, were performed on Broadway, and more than twenty of them appeared on television, during its early days. He died in 1980.

Sandy McIntosh has published several volumes of poetry and non-fiction prose. His essays have appeared in the New York Times, Newsday, and elsewhere. He was a student of H.R. Hays.
