Poetry. The subject of the long poem that makes up FORM OF FORMS is, to paraphrase poet Betsy Warland: Motherloss. It deals with the emotional and bureaucratic nature of identity from the often bewildered and fractured point of view of someone who was relinquished as an infant. Now, as an adult, Goldstein is seeking "information" on the self through the layers and fields of forms one must look through to gain access to that information. These layers and forms are what make up the framework of the poem, and the reader is brought face-to-face with the slippery nature of identity as seen through the lens of adoption.

About the Author:

Mark Goldstein is a Toronto writer. In 2010, he inaugurated the Toronto New School of Writing with his 12-week seminar on Transtranslation. While lecturing at EHESS, l'École des hautes études en sciences sociales, in Paris in 2010, he launched TRACELANGUAGE: A SHARED BREATH, his second book, a transtranslation of poet Paul Celan's seminal work Atemwende. His first poetry collection, AFTER RILKE, is a set of letters in homage to late American poet Jack Spicer and a series of homophonic translations based on Rilke's "The Voices." From 1989 to 1999, he played drums in the indie rock band By Divine Right, whose members included Broken Social Scene's Brendan Canning and Leslie Feist.
