-Jack Hirschman (1933) 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.

Iranian-born poet, artist and publisher, Soheyl Dahi has lived in the San Francisco Bay Area since 1979. He is the author of three books of poetry and a book of interviews with Lawrence Ferlinghetti. As founder of Sore Dove Press, he has published Jack Hirschman, Diane di Prima, Joanne Kyger, Linda King, Alejandro Murguia and others.
