About Aliki Barnstone

ALIKI and WILLIS BARNSTONE are the daughter and father editors of the anthology A Book of Women Poets from Antiquity Until Now. Both poets in their own right, Willis Barnstone was also a translator, comparatist, and New Testament and Gnostic scholar. His deep friendship with Pablo Neruda was one of the most important of his life. Aliki Barnstone, his daugther, is a prominent scholar and translator as well, but it is her poetry that had her nominated for two Pulitzer Prizes.show more
