Jack Hirschman is an American poet and social activist who has written more than 50 volumes of poetry and essays.
For a quarter century, Hirschman has roamed San Francisco streets, cafes (including Caffe Trieste, where he has been a regular patron), and readings, becoming an active street poet and a peripatetic activist. Hirschman is also a painter and collagist, and has translated over two dozen books from German, French, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Albanian, and Greek.
"What a relief to find a poet who is not afraid of the vulgar or the sentimental, who can burst out laughing or cry his head off in poetry - who can make love to language or kick it in the pants." Poet Karl Shapiro.
Fun Fact: Jim Morrison of The Doors fame was a student in a class taught by Hirschman at UCLA.
