All I Can Say For Sure

The poems in McAuley’s All I Can Say for Sure range from personal archaeology and elegiac fictions of free translations to grammar wordplay for the initiated to a compassionately ironic look at the passing of life to rewired material extensions of our inner and outer spaces. McAuley’s meditations upon the details of quotidian life and historical personae are rendered with the syntactical precision of a linguist and the metaphorical density of a riddler.

Author Biography

John McAuley was born in Montreal. He completed an M.A. in creative writing at Sir George Williams University in 1974. During the 1970s, he edited Maker, a magazine dedicated to experimental poetry and prose that circulated among poets and writers in 23 countries. He also co-ran a successful poetry reading series at Véhicule Art Inc. where he was a member of the executive and, later, coordinator of the gallery. As one of the original Vehicule poets, he was instrumental in seeing the group’s landmark anthology, The Vehicule Poets, to publication with Maker Press in 1979 and began teaching in the English Department at Concordia University at about the same time. He has published four books: Nothing Ever Happens in Pointe-Claire, Mattress Testing, Hazardous Renaissance and What Henry Hudson Found. His work has also appeared in a variety of anthologies. He continues to live in Montreal..
