Born in Montreal, Chris Hutchinson is the author of three books of poetry plus his most recent book Jonas in Frames, which has been variously described as a “picaresque novel,” a “novel in verse,” and “an epic poem disguised as a novel.” His recent raids on the lyric mode seek to test the lyric’s implicit claims to singularity and authority. These poems make a virtue of mistrusting their own inner logic and take seriously Wallace Stevens’ proposition that “the poet represents the mind in the act of defending us against itself.” Chris holds a Ph.D. in Literature and Creative Writing from the University of Houston, and in the fall of 2018 he will be joining the Department of English at MacEwan University in Edmonton, Alberta.
