Praise for Karen Mac Cormack

“No one writing in North America today can match Karen Mac Cormack’s exquisite poise, the integrity of her poetic line, her command of verbal nuance, pun, and paragram.” — Marjorie Perloff

Born in Luanshya, Zambia, Karen Mac Cormack’s most recent book is the polybiography Implexures (Complete Edition), published by Chax Press and West House Books in 2008. Her poetry appears in various national and international anthologies, including Prismatic Publics, Another Language, and Out of Everywhere. Her work is also the subject of numerous essays, most recently Antiphonies: Essays on Women’s Experimental Poetries in Canada (2008). Selections of her poetry have been translated into French, Portuguese, Swedish, and Norwegian. A resident of Toronto for many years, she currently lives in the US where she teaches at the State University of New York at Buffalo.
