When not-very-religious Montreal poet Jason Camlot's father died, he decided to practice the strict one-year period of mourning of the religious Jew, which included attending synagogue every single day. What The World Said, Camlot's fourth full poetry collection, is an updated Kaddish for the post-google age, exploring the meaning of ignorance in the face of deathÑignorance of how to practice sadness and rituals of mourning, and of how properly to experience longing and loss. Camlot manipulates a wide range of forms to mine the relationship between the most intimate kinds of grief and the impersonal flood of discourse that the world pours upon us.

Jason Camlot is the author of three previous collections of poetry, The Debaucher (Insomniac Press, 2008), Attention All Typewriters (DC Books, 2005), and The Animal Library (DC Books, 2001). He co-edited the essay anthology Language Acts (Vehicule Press, 2007), about English-language poetry in QuŽbec, and has done extensive research into sound recordings of 19th- and 20th-century poetry. Jason teaches Victorian literature, among other things, at Concordia University in Montreal. He edits the Punchy Poetry imprint for DC Books.
