Rebecca Kosick is a poet and scholar who works in a variety of traditional and experimental text-based formats, including the essay, lyric poetry, material poetics, translation, and textiles. Her work explores the limits and possibilities of poetic language when it foregrounds its material affordances. Her current project–which spans original poetry and academic writing–investigates what poetic language is and has been for poets over the last 50 years.
Kosick co-directs the Bristol Poetry Institute and founded the Indisciplinary Poetics Research Cluster at the University of Bristol. She has a PhD in Comparative Literature from Cornell University.
