How much can you tweak English before it malfunctions?
It's been a bit quiet here, mostly because I've been busy doing things in the 'real' world, and also because I've been blogging over at Jacket2.org about visual poetry. My latest post is about the English visual poet, Mike Cannell.
You can find that post here. I get all political and write how how Cannell's work investigates how language can be complicit in the expression of a capitalist system.
I've recently written about Christian Bok, Dan Waber, Erica Baum, a. rawlings, John M. Bennett, derek beaulieu. I've many more posts to come about a great variety of writers. I'm looking forward to seeing where the series goes as I attempt to further investigation the motivation, context, and reading of visual poetry. If you any comment or ideas, please drop me a line.
