About the Author

Chad Sweeney is the author of Parable of Hide and Seek (Alice James), Arranging the Blaze (Anhinga), and An Architecture (BlazeVOX) and co-translator of the Selected Poems of contemporary Iranian poet H.E. Sayeh (White Pine). Sweeney’s poems have been included in Best American Poetry, The Pushcart Prize Anthology and The Writer’s Almanac. He teaches in the MFA program at California State University, San Bernardino and lives in Redlands with his wife, the poet Jennifer K. Sweeney and their son Liam. Juan Sweeney de las Minas de Cobre is undoubtedly the most mysterious and influential Spanish/Irish poet to have ever lived. His life and poems are commonly credited as the seeds for Cervantes’ Don Quixote as well as Lord Byron’s eponymous hero. Sweeney described himself as “what night coughed up on its shore,” and indeed it proves difficult to locate his year and place of birth. A direct descendent of the pagan king Sweeney the Mad and of the mystical wolf herder of Mt. Ararat, Sweeney’s childhood touched down in much of Ireland, Spain, Byzantium, Bolivia and Oklahoma. Though he loved cheese and whiskey, he could go weeks without food or sleep with a spare set of clothes packed inside his guitar. Famously loyal, Juan Sweeney of the Copper Mines regularly visited all seventeen of his grandmothers, and you should too.
