Frank Samperi

Frank Samperi (1933-1991) was discovered by Louis Zukofsky and Cid Corman; he published some 20 books of poetry and appeared prominently in journals such as Origin and Caterpillar. Master of the lyric and an autodidact steeped in Dante, Aquinas, and Shankara, Samperi created a unified, highly original lifepoem of pilgrimage through the American city and world of the spirit.
