Peter Jaeger, author of ABC of Reading TRG, is currently a SSHRC postdoctoral fellow at State University of New York, Buffalo, where he is writing on conceptual poetics. His work includes the poetry collection Power Lawn (Coach House Books, 1999), as well as the chapbook Bibliodoppler (Writer’s Forum, 1998) and the artist’s workbook stretch conflates (Tailspin, 1997).
Born in Vancouver, Frank Davey attended the University of British Columbia where he was a co-founder of the avant-garde poetry magazine TISH. Since 1963, he has been the editor-publisher of the poetics journal Open Letter. In addition, he co-founded the world’s first on-line literary magazine, SwiftCurrent in 1984. Davey writes with a unique panache as he examines with humour and irony the ambiguous play of signs in contemporary culture, the popular stories that lie behind it, and the struggles between different identity-based groups in our globalizing society—racial, regional, gender-based, ethnic, economic—that drive this play.
