E.D. Blodgett. E.D. Blodgett has published numerous books of poetry as well as diverse criticism and literary translations. He is Distinguished University Professor Emeritus of Comparative Literature at the University of Alberta. He has won the Governor General's Award twice, for poetry and translation. From 2007 to 2009 he was Edmonton's Poet Laureate. Blodgett lives in South Surrey, British Columbia.

"Blodgett shows that he has the courage to go way out on a limb when his poetics demand it.. Apostrophes II contains the finest verse I've read in a long time. In terms of technical excellence and intellectual excitement, I was reminded throughout of Eliot.... every poem stopped me cold with passages of such beauty that I simply had to reread them again and again." James Deahl, CBRA
