Rutgers University | RU-N Professor John Keene is as versatile and nimble as they come. A schlolar, poet and translator, he also has a painting background and has collaborated with illustrators and photographers on his poetry volumes—and on conceptual art installations, such as one on the Iraq War he’s been doing since 2002. Keene’s latest collection of stories, Counternarratives, draws from his varied interests and skill-set. It has been hailed by critics as groundbreaking and is his most ambitious work to date.
