about

John Reibetanz captures the ordinary details of life — family and friendship, birth and death — and transforms them into the extraordinary. His seventh book of poetry is a masterful collection, finely crafted with wit, warmth and affection.

Transformations is divided into four parts, each providing a different perspective on the main theme. Choosing not to confront but to explore, he allows for subtle revelations of a deeper truth which hover just beneath the surface, turning the world upside down and right side up again with his poetic "transformations." The result is nothing short of magical.

John Reibetanz was born in New York City, and grew up in the eastern United States and Canada. He put himself through university by working at numerous non-poetic jobs, and is probably the only member of the League of Canadian Poets to have belonged to the Amalgamated Meatcutters Union.

John Reibetanz captures the ordinary details of life — family and friendship, birth and death — and transforms them into the extraordinary. His seventh book of poetry is a masterful collection, finely crafted with wit, warmth and affection. Transformations is divided into four parts, each providing a different perspective on the main theme. Choosing not to confront but to explore, he allows for subtle revelations of a deeper truth which hover just beneath the surface, turning the world upside down and right side up again with his poetic "transformations." The result is nothing short of magical."Unflagging ingenuity and a fluent music — these are the outward aspects of what turns out to be a collection of visitations, parables, and visions. Exemplary for me is the short tale in which art's "mistake" (in this case Fra Angelico's) is offered as elegant, if zany, proof of the transubstantiative power of desire. As always, Reibetanz's insights repay multiple rereadings." — Roo Borson
