CAConrad is one of North America’s most important poets and a distinctive voice for “a different USA”. With his seven poetry collections, the first published in 2005, he has made his mark as the Allen Ginsberg of his generation. That is at least what the American media are fond of calling him. Early on he patented the technique “Somatic poetics”, in which he prepares every poem through rituals related to the act of writing. Conrad lives literature: there is nothing outside, nothing else inside. This has made him one of the most sought-after performance poets in the US and abroad.
