Rauan Klassnik - Bio
Rauan Klassnik was born in the hull of a ship with horses en route to the New World in the 16th century. Sometimes he fought bravely at the side of Hernan Cortes and in the siege of Mexico city on three occasions was nearly dragged off for sacrifice. Octavio Paz said he was a damned fool and Neruda wouldn´t even give him the time of day. Then Fox came into power and his tail started to grow. In the mornings you can find him walking on the beach imagining heavenly festivals where pinyatas and tacos never run out. Recent poems of Ron Klassnik have been published, or are forthcoming shortly, in Borderlands, Contrary, Hunger Mountain, Sentence and The Mississippi Review.
