History

Eli Mandel was born in 1922 in Estevan, Saskatchewan. Following military service in World War II, he resumed his studies at the University of Saskatchewan where he received an M.A. in English. Between 1953 and 1957, he taught at the College Militaire Royal de Saint-Jean. On completion of his Ph.D. at the University of Toronto, he joined the Department of English at the University of Alberta. His first published work appeared in 1954, a collection of poems in Trio. Thereafter, Mandel published several volumes of poetry including Black and Secret Man (1964), Criticism: The Silent-Speaking Words (1966), Eight More Canadian Poets (1972), The Poems of Irving Layton (1977), Life Sentence (1981) and several others. In the process, he established himself as one of Canada's foremost literary critics.

Apart from his major academic appointments, Mandel has taught courses and given workshops and readings at most Canadian universities as well as in other settings, in Canada and abroad (Europe, India).

By his first marriage, to Miriam Minovitch, Mandel has a daughter (Evie) and a son (Charles); by his second, to Ann Hardy, a daughter (Sara). He died September 3, 1992 in Toronto, Ontario.
