McKay’s collected poems, Angular Unconformity was published in 2014 and he has won the Governor General’s Literary Award for poetry twice, for Night Field (1991) and Another Gravity (2000). Dodds’ most recent publication is a translation of the Poetic Edda (Coach House Books, 2014) from Old Icelandic into English. He is a poetry editor at Coach House Books.
“McKay displays an extraordinary capacity for submitting to and reveling in the musical phrases and cadences of language while never coming loose form meaning and sense.” Here McKay reads from Camber (2005).
“There is a psycholonic lexical energy here, deep intelligence and a serious commitment to craft.” Here Dodds read from Crabwise to the Hounds (2004).
