FIELD HOLLERS is the collaboration of pre-dawn poets Solomon Rino and Iván Argüelles. It represents the call-and-response of two disembodied voices from opposite sides of the Bay, voices that demand a scrupulous account of the raison d’etre of existence. Though supposedly separate the twin/voices become seamless and one. 

Innovative Mexican-American poet  Iván Argüelles is the author of numerous works, notably “That” GoddessHapax LegomenonMadonna Septet, and Comedy , Divine , The . Among recently published works are Fragments from a Gone WorldTamazunchale, and Diario di un ottogenario. The long arc of his life has taken him from Mexico DF to Minnesota Chicago Italy Brooklyn and finally Berkeley. A retired librarian, he worked at the  New York Public Library and the Library UC Berkeley. Usually associated with the surrealists, his work has deep roots in the classics as well as modernists such as Pound and Joyce. A bilingual edition of the translation of some of his poems is in preparation.

Solomon Rino is a playwright, poet, book artist and publisher. His first book was an ethnography of Tibetan ritual tradition, Deity Men, Reb gong Tibetan Trance Mediums in Transition. He translated from the Hungarian Miklos Radnoti’s Bor Notebook as A Wiser, More Beautiful Death. He edited and designed the book, Like an eye in the hand of a beggar by Leopoldo Maria Panero, translated by Arturo Mantecón. He edits the annual journal Second Stutter representing significant voices in contemporary poetry.
