Some notes from Friday’s Symposium on Radical Poetics and Avant-Garde Poetry at Portland State.
Marjorie Perloff: Rrroaratorio. Lyric I as squeak once lyres fade.
Joan Retallack: “What if all the poets stopped singing to talk?”
Lyn Hejinian: Is it possible to hear Lyn Hejinian read without feeling good?
Hank Lazer: “Of course spirit is a topic that should produce squeamishness.” Cut with jazz and courtly prose, it don’t.
