I’m working on a presentation for a seminar on Wednesday that navigates through Rushdie, Plato’s Republic (2,3,10), Julia Kristeva’s Ethics of Linguistics, Eudora Welty’s Must the Novelist Crusade, as well as others, oh so many others…
Anyway, find attached a couple of .pdf’s of some things I’ve been fiddling with:
Sisyphus ~ reads from the bottom up (hence the title at the bottom)
Essay Poem Draft II ~ took an old essay of mine, and tried to find a poem in it by blacking out words, and applying colour to the text to link letters, it’s something that still needs a good amount of work (I’m working on one that uses a page of Barthes Death of the Author, it’s great fun).
Also; snippet from something else:
‘The stars fuck
while we sleep.
slipping in that wash
of hungry hugs.
crunching ‘gainst hard walls.
knocks to the shoulder
and bites below the ears
where the bruises
will shift from blue,
