Drawing from a wide range of poetry and poetics from across the globe and from translations from multiple languages, Mark Grenon has written in both traditional forms, particularly the sonnet and dramatic monologue, and in free verse. His most recent poems draw from hybrid poetry, language poetry, and conceptual poetry. Grenon also explores the boundaries between the poetics of the theatre, t
he novel, and the long poem. At once traditional in his concerns and a devoted experimentalist increasingly captivated by cut-ups, collage, and writing of an aleatoric bent, Grenon seeks to interrogate notions of the self, language, and the state. His writing is also largely informed by his experiments with other media such as drawing, photography, and painting.
