Christian Bok Biography
Christian Bok (born Book, 1966- ), is a Canadian experimental poet.

His poetry has been featured in the lyrics of Norwegian artist Ulver's "A Quick Fix of Melancholy EP" (2003).

Bök is a graduate of the University of Toronto and currently teaches at York University in Toronto. He has also worked in science-fiction television, designing artificial languages for fictional alien species.
