Robert Cooperman's poetry lives in two worlds: the Brooklyn of his Jewish upbringing and the fantasy worlds he inhabits in most of his collections. He's equally at home in the Colorado Territory, the Middle Ages, Ireland during the time of British oppression, as he is in the shenanigans and devilment he got up to as a boy on Brooklyn's less than mean streets. He is the winner of the Colorado Book Award for Poetry in 2000, for In the Colorado Gold Fever Mountains and the runner-up for the WILLA Literary Award, sponsored by Women Writing the West, for The Widow's Burden.
