A poet from his mid-teens until his death in May of 2018, Colin Stuart considered poetics a cosmology, language an essential player in evolution, and himself a Mariner of the Ancient Rime. The nature of desire, the search for abiding love, the initiatory task of a visionary poetics, and the urgent need to revitalize our experience of language were among his deepest concerns. An early influence, Robert Creeley, wrote, "Words, words, as if all worlds were there," and as if in response, Colin wrote, "Language has plans for us all." The Colin Stuart Fonds, containing his life's work, much of it as yet unpublished, is currently being archived for the Contemporary Literature Collection of the W.A.C. Bennett Library at Simon Fraser University.
