Tom Raworth was born in London in 1938. Since leaving school at 16 he has worked; occasionally taught; printed and published poetry by others in both magazines and books; lived in England, the United States and Mexico; had more than 40 books of his own (poetry and prose) published; been translated into many languages; exhibited his graphic work worldwide; collaborated with musicians, visual artists and other writers; and has given readings in more than twenty countries (most recently China and Mexico).
