Eileen Myles has written thousands of poems since she gave her first reading at CBGB's in 1974. Bust magazine calls her "the rock star of modern poetry" and The New York Times says she's "a cult figure to a generation of post-punk females forming their own literary avant garde." Her books include Skies, Cool For You, and School of Fish; recently she wrote the libretto for an opera called Hell, based on Dante's Inferno.
