Read more about Technicians of the Sacred here:
Jerome Rothenberg is an internationally celebrated poet, translator, anthologist, and performer with over ninety books of poetry and twelve assemblages of traditional and avant-garde poetry such as Technicians of the Sacred, Shaking the Pumpkin, Exiled in the Word, and, with Pierre Joris and Jeffrey Robinson, Poems for the Millennium, volumes 1-3. He was a founding figure of ethnopoetics –the combination of poetic practice and theory, and he has been a longtime practitioner and theorist of poetry performance. A significantly expanded 50th anniversary edition of Technicians of the Sacred has just been published by the University of California Press, and a new book of poems, A Field on Mars: Poems 2000-2015, was published last year in separate English and French editions.
