George Ellenbogen

GEORGE ELLENBOGEN studied literature at McGill University in Montreal and Tufts University in Massachusetts, and then taught poetry at Bentley College in Massachusetts until his retirement in 2004. His books include Along the Road from Eden, and The Rhino Gate Poems (1996), which has been translated into German and French. He is the subject of a documentary film, George Ellenbogen: Canadian Poet in America. His new book, Morning Gothic (Véhicule), captures the strength and delicacy of his writing. Critic John Kinsella calls Ellenbogen “one of the most human and humane poets I have ever read.” A Montrealer by birth and upbringing, Ellenbogen lives in Boston.
