Paul Rossiter

Paul Rossiter was born in Cornwall, England, in 1947. Since 1981 he has lived in Japan, where he teaches English and applied linguistics (and, when he gets the chance, twentieth-century poetry) at the University of Tokyo, Komaba. Three books of poetry have appeared from small presses in Japan: In Daylight (Printed Matter, 1995), Monumenta Nipponica (Saru, 1995) and The Painting Stick (Pine Wave, 2005).
