Robert Bringhurst

Robert Bringhurst is one of Canada’s most celebrated poets. He was born in California in 1946, moved with his family to Alberta in 1952, and has lived most of his adult life in the remoter parts of the British Columbia coast. He has also been a Guggenheim Fellow in poetry, Witter Bynner Fellow in Poetry at the Library of Congress, Philips Fund Fellow at the American Philosophical Society, writer-in-residence at the University of Edinburgh, and winner of the prestigious Edward Sapir Prize in Native American linguistics. He is widely known both for his work as a scholar and translator of Native American oral literatures (Haida, Cree, Navajo) and as a historian and practitioner of the fine art of typography. Copper Canyon has published three of his many books of poetry: The Beauty of the Weapons (1985), Pieces of Map, Pieces of Music (1987), and the new Selected Poems (2011).
