Daniel Polikoff is a poet, translator, and internationally recognized Rilke scholar. In addition to numerous (over seventy) journal and anthology publications and a Pushcart Prize nomination, Daniel has published two books of poetry (Dragon Ship and The Hands of Stars). His recent (2011) acclaimed book on Rilke and archetypal psychology In the Image of Orpheus: Rilke—A Soul History has found readers around the world, and he will be offering a course in Rilke at the California Institute of Integral Studies in the fall.
Daniel originally hails from the Chicago area, but has now lived in Marin for over 16 years, the majority of it in his current address up on the ridge near the Miwok trail in Mill Valley, where he lives with wife Monika and fourteen-year-old son Hyden.
Daniel's most recent, just completed project is a joint one with Hyden: a mixed genre creative non-fiction/poetry book titled Safari: A Father and Son's African Adventure.
