Christian Bök, born in Toronto, Canada, in 1966, combines language games and entertainment in wonderful ways. His books Chrystallography and Eunoia are poetic experiments in “clear writing” and “fine thinking”, with the latter collection bringing him the renowned Griffin Poetry Prize as well as being Canada’s best-selling poetry book. Bök continues the experimentation of concrete and sound poetry, doing homage to their great figures not only in his own texts but also in performances of classics such as Kurt Schwitters’ Ursonate.
