What few know is that in 1935, at age 54, Picasso stopped painting, and for a time devoted himself entirely to poetry. Even after eventually resuming his visual work, Picasso continued to write, in a characteristic torrent, until 1959 - leaving a body of poems that Andre Breton praised as, an intimate journal, both of the feelings and the senses, such as has never been kept before.

Near the end of his life, Picasso himself would tell a friend that, long after his death his writing would gain recognition and encyclopedias would say: Picasso, Pablo Ruiz - Spanish poet who dabbled in painting, drawing and sculpture.

Jerome Rothenberg and Pierre Joris have overseen a project to translate the majority of this writing into English for the first time.

Working from Picassos Spanish and French (he wrote in both languages), they have enlisted the help of over a dozen colleagues in order to mark, as they note in their introduction, Picassos entry into our own time. Picassos poems are as protean, erotic, scatological, and experimental as his visual art - yet they arrive as a twenty-first century surprise, even for many devotees.
