Steven McCaffery (Sheffield, UK, 1947)
Steven McCaffey is an English poet. He moved to Toronto in 1968. In 1970, he began to collaborate with fellow poets Rafael Barreto-Rivera, Paul Dutton, and bpNichol, forming the Sound Poetry group “The Four Horsemen”. Some of McCaffery’s poetry attempts to break language from the logic of syntax and structure to create a purely emotional response. He has created three-dimensional structures of words and has released a number of sound and video works, often in collaboration with other poets. He currently holds the David Gray Chair at the State University of New York at Buffalo.
