about

Taking Walt Whitman’s Civil War poems as an inspiration, Rob Halpern’s Music for Porn moves across the landscape of battlefields and homoerotic affect in an encompassing engagement of desire and death. Halpern work, constructed of poetry and lyric prose, evinces a world in which the physical and linguistic body are permeated by, and implicated in, the globalized maneuvers of modern warfare and capitalist endeavor.
ROB HALPERN is the author of two books of poems, Rumored Place, nominated for a California Book Award, and Disaster Suites. With Taylor Brady, he also co-authored Snow Sensitive Skin. He teaches at Eastern Michigan University and lives in San Francisco and Ypsilanti, Michigan.

Editorial Reviews

“Rob Halpern’s body of work in toto constitutes a rigorous intervention into the normative grammar of lyricism.” - Tyrone Williams
