Robert Priest

Robert Priest (also known as Dr Poetry on CBC’s Wordbeat) has performed his exciting mix of poems and songs all over the world. His words have been debated in the legislature (see the video at youtube/greatbigfaced), turned into a hit song, posted in the Transit system, broadcast on MuchMusic, released on numerous CDs, quoted by politicians and widely published in textbooks and anthologies. He is the author of fifteen books of poetry, 3 plays, 2 novels, lots of  musical CDS, one hit song and many columns for Now Magazine.  His latest book is Reading the Bible Backwards (ECW, fall 2008).
