Richter-Rauzer Variations

each exposed

without knowledge
without aversion

never uttering
never diminishing



yet we

and we

within (from “Dilemmas”)

Robert Manery studied with Bob Hogg at Carleton University in the 1980s. In response to Rob’s complaint about contemporary poetry, Bob suggested that he should read the language poets. This suggestion led to Rob’s continuing interest in the possibilities and limits of meaning-making. It also led to his collaborations with Louis Cabri, hosting literary events, including Bob Hogg’s seminar on Charles Olson’s The Special View of History, and then publishing hole magazine and hole books. Rob has published one book of poems, It’s Not As If It Hasn’t Been Said Before (Tsunami Editions). He currently teaches academic writing at Simon Fraser University where he is pursuing a doctorate in education.
