News & Reviews
“Every city has a poet who inhabits its heart and is somehow its resident spirit. He or she may not be the most public of that city’s poets, but more than the visible ones, holds the secrets in a clandestine sort of way… It long ago struck me that the poet of English Montreal who best exemplified the city’s soul was Artie Gold… Unusual and sometimes brilliant images rise out of a poetic voice that manages to stay close to speech and yet sound absolutely individual” —Allo Books
About the Author
Artie Gold was a Montreal-based Canadian poet who rose to prominence in the 1970s as a member of the circle of Montreal-based writers known as the Vehicule Poets—a group known for Dadaist/experimental writing and performance works. Characterized as one of the wildest and most daring of the Vehicule poets, Gold was influenced by the work of Jack Spicer and Frank O’Hara, his cats (to whom he was allergic) and his myriad eclectic autodidact interests. Gold died in 2007.
