Daniel Bourne

Daniel Bourne’s books include The Household Gods (Cleveland State University), Where No One Spoke the Language (CustomWords), and a collection of translations of the Polish poet Tomasz Jastrun, On the Crossroads of Asia and Europe (Salmon Run). Currently he teaches at The College of Wooster in Northeast Ohio, where he edits Artful Dodge and lives in an old country schoolhouse with his wife Margaret and son Carter. His poems have appeared in American Poetry Review, FIELD, Ploughshares, Indiana Review, Salmagundi, Shenandoah, The Journal, and North American Review. Many of the poems in Where No One Spoke the Language stem from his years living in Poland during the 1980s and 1990s, including on a research fellowship from Indiana University to Warsaw University during the martial law period in 1982-3 and on a Fulbright fellowship for the translation of younger Polish poets in 1985-7.
