Edwin Honig

Edwin Honig was instrumental in establishing a writing program at Brown (now the Literary Arts department). A poet, playwright, critic and translator (perhaps most notably of Lorca, Pessoa and of Calderon), Honig mentored generations of students seeking to work in the field of letters. Knighted by the King of Spain and by the President of Portugal, Honig was author of over a dozen books of poetry (including Spring Journal and Interrupted Praise) and a similar number of works in translation. He was the founding editor of Copper Beech Press.
