Christian Bök

Christian Bök (1966- ) is a Canadian experimental poet. His work Eunoia, a story that uses only one vowel in each of its five chapters, is one of the best selling works of Canadian poetry and was edited by Darren Wershler-Henry at Coach House Books. It also won the lucrative Griffin Poetry Prize in 2002. His poetry has been featured in the lyrics of Norwegian artist Ulver's "A Quick Fix of Melancholy EP" (2003). Bök is also a sound poet, having performed an extremely condensed version of Marinetti's Ursonate, and has created an artist book comprised of Rubik's cubes. Bök is a graduate of the University of Toronto and teaches at York University in Toronto.
