Poet, scholar, editor, and critic R.S. Gwynn was born in Eden, North Carolina. A New Formalist, Gwynn works within and against the demands of complex verse forms such as the villanelle, pantoum, and rondeau, in a voice at once wry and emotionally charged. The author of several collections of poetry, Gwynn has taught at Lamar University since 1976. He lives in Beaumont, Texas.
