Cynthia MacDonald

Trained in opera and able to perform 35 roles, Cynthia MacDonald writes poems stressing the intermittent music of the modem mind trying to achieve wholeness. "Transplants" and "Amputations" are the names of her first two collections of poems. "W(holes)," published this year, has been described as "a poetry of awe and riddles, by turns sardonic and passionate, strangely and profoundly beautiful." Ms. MacDonald has received a National Academy and Institute Award for her work. A member of the board of directors of the Associated Writing Programs, she directs creative writing at the University of Houston. [extracted from 1980 brochure]
