Queen Rat: New and Selected Poems (List) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Originally published in 1998, Lynn Crosbie brought her unique voice to the forefront of Canadian poetry with this important collection of verse. Hers is a world of Shakespeare, skinheads, and centurions; and hers is a life stripped to the basics and then reconstructed with relish, every brick scrutinized meticulously. In Queen Rat her language is urban, but her soul is universal as she explores that which makes up everything.

About the Author

Lynn Crosbie was born in Montreal and is a cultural critic, author, and poet. The holder of a Ph.D. in English literature with a background in visual studies, she teaches at the University of Toronto and the Art Gallery of Ontario. Her books (of poetry and prose) include Pearl, Queen Rat, and Dorothy L'Amour. She is also the author of the controversial book, Paul's Case and the editor of The Girl Wants To. She is a contributing editor at Fashion and a National Magazine Award winner who has written about sports, style, art, and music.
