What are you currently reading?

What are your five favourite texts?

I regularly return to poems by Yeats, Auden, Frost, Cummings, W.S. Merwin, Dylan Thomas, Lorna Crozier, bpNichol, and Steven Heighton rattling 'round in my memory.

What texts have you had the most fun researching?

"The Several Speeches and Songs at the Presentment of Mr. Bushell's Rock to the Queen's Majesty" (1636)

What would you be if you weren't an English professor?

The road not taken at the end of my undergraduate studies would have led to law school, but if I'd gone where my heart said go, I'd have worked my way back to owning and operating a hardware store in the middle of farming country, as my paternal grandfather did.
