About the Author
Susan Mitchell is originally from Scotland, where she studied drawing and painting at the Edinburgh College of Art. In 1993, she moved to Montreal, where now lives with her husband and son while working as a freelance commercial illustrator. (Susan has designedmore Christmas cards than Santa has whiskers.) She also illustrated Paula Deen's My First Cookbook.
"Susan Mitchell's "Rapture" reinforces one's faith in the power of poetry to evoke the mystery, beauty, and terror of existence. Her art is the product of a first-class mind, in love with memory and language, enriched by myth and science, fastidious about particulars, and ever-inquiring. In their brilliant and sometimes erotic nervosity these poems are at once subtle and sensuous, dark and luminous, painful and exalted." -- Stanley Kunitz"Susan Mitchell's poems are both subtle and passionate. At their best they set up a kind of centripetal rhetorical field into which casual idiom and arcane allusion are irresistible drawn. So (I should add) is the reader." -- James Merill
