Haberman (1933–1991) was an American poet, translator and graphic designer. Haberman was instrumental in founding the American Poets' Corner at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City and was the Cathedral's first Poet-in-Residence (1983-1986). Haberman published two volumes of poetry, Poems (1977) and The Furtive Wall (1982). A collection of his verse, The Lug of Days to Come (1996) was released posthumously. Haberman's translations of Archilochus, Erinna, Praxilla, Antipater of Sidon, Zenobius, and Gaetulicus were done in collaboration with Marylin B. Arthur. As a graphic designer, Haberman designed 16 editions of Shakespeare.
