Display at Bennett Library featuring poet, editor, and essayist Robin Blaser

Visit the Robin Blaser display at the Burnaby campus and learn about this captivating poet, editor, and essayist.

As part of the SFU 50th Anniversary celebration Bennett Library’s Special Collections & Rare Books Division has mounted a display on Robin Blaser’s life and work.

Former SFU professor Robin Blaser (1925-2009) came north to Vancouver from San Francisco in 1966 to join the newly established SFU English Dept.  He taught at the university for two decades, during which time he proved a charismatic and inspiring teacher, as well as a practicing poet, editor and essayist with a steadily rising international reputation.

The display is on the W.A.C. Bennett Library’s main floor (3rd) and continues outside Special Collections on the 7th floor, from September 10 – October 30, 2015. Materials are drawn from the extensive Blaser archive, housed in the Contemporary Literature Collection of Special Collections and Rare Books.
