Fred Beake

FRED BEAKE has been publishing poetry since the early 1970's. He has a large Selected Poems, and another volume Towards the West with University of Salzburg Press. His new book of poems and translations `Places and Elegies' is now out from Salzburg. He is working on a book on H.D. He co-edits the Poet's Voice magazine. He has an old fashioned respect for sound and rhythm, which leads him however to admire his experimental contemporaries Bill Griffiths and Barry MacSweeney, though they write in a very different way to himself. Always interested in the Classics (but not an academic) he has translated a good deal from ancient Greek in recent years. In his own work he is a surrealist who loves the Romantics, and is fascinated by Pound, Williams, H.D. and their successors.

Fred Beake's poems are available in this Webspace.

Juan Beauregaard-Montez

Juan Beauregaard-Montez was born in Chiapas, Mexico in 1960, the bastard son of a Zapatista guerilla and an British diplomat's daughter. For reasons of state security and to avoid scandal he was reared by Menonite missionaries, where according to Juan, "he was taught how to hate". This hatred manifested in Juan becoming a guerilla, joining his father in the Chiapas mountains where his hatred of the vencendorias solidified and his love of common people materialized. Although he had received a classical education and had studied art at the Sorbonne and poetry under the auspices of Yves Bonnefoy at the Lysee Mercure he became the fiercest and most feared of all the revolutionaries in the region. Because of this a price of $50,000 U.S. dollars was placed on the head and genitals of Juan by the Mexican government's governor of the region. Juan's mother pleaded with his father to convince Juan to return to Europe where he could better fight the battle for his people's liberation before The Hague and the European Union. Today, Juan continues his battles on several fronts, writes columns and articles under several hetronyms and some of the world's most beautiful, important poetry under the name of Juan Beauregaard-Montez. He is a member of The Tampa Group of SurSymbolist poets surrounding Duane Locke, Donald Ryburn and Damniso Lopez. His poetry is distributed exclusively through the Lind Call Literary Agency.
