This is basically a poetry reading. We’d like to proceed in the context of &NOW 2015’s theme of “Writing and the Other Arts.” Our own thought is that writing is related to the other arts in the first sense insofar as it shares with them a relation to the animating antagonisms of its time — that it finds itself in the same blast radius, and that collaboration is always mediated by this. We’ll try to puzzle through some thoughts about a version of contemporary poetry’s period style, and how it got that way.
