more good news: i may have found a home for my Magee essay. i wont mention where yet, cause they still have to read it (which means i have to finish!). but it looks promising.
today was uneventful. just worked on the essay and on my chapbook “afterthrall”, which is coming along nicely. it’s stranger than anything i’ve ever written, but i think that’s why i like it so much 😉
so lots of interesting blog discussions going on…FIRST, on celan and newer criticism over HERE.
SECOND, on APOCALYPTO and representation over HERE
FINALLY, a very interesting back and forth between Barret Watten and Juliana Spahr which started with Spahr’s reading of the representation of African Americans in the newly released THE GRAND PIANO. Her initial comment is this:
“Then couldn’t stop reading last week the first volume of The Grand Piano. What to make of first volume of a 10 volume project? Or it feels too early to say much of meaning. Struck by insularity. Almost no one from outside gets in. And how black people show up around sexuality only.”
WATTEN’S RESPONSE IS HERE.
