Peter Cole has published two collections of poetry, Rift (Station Hill)
and Hymns & Qualms (Sheep Meadow Press). What Is Doubled: Poems
1981-1989, was recently published by Shearsman Books in the UK. Cole has
worked intensively on Hebrew literature, with special emphasis on
medieval Hebrew poetry. His Selected Poems of Shmuel HaNagid, published
by Princeton U.P. (1996), received the MLA's Scaglione Prize for
Translation. Cole was granted a TLS translation award for Selected Poems
of Solomon Ibn Gabirol, also by Princeton U. Press (2001). His new
anthology, The Dream of the Poem, traces the arc of the entire period
and reveals this remarkable poetic world in all of its richness, humor,
grace, gravity, and wisdom. 


Cole has received numerous awards for his work, including fellowships
from the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation, the National Endowment for
the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the 1998 Modern
Language Association Translation Award. He was just named a recipient of
the prestigious 2007 MacArthur Genius Award.
