I’m particularly interested in those aspects that subvert the ‘manifest image’ of the human and the Universe, rather than in those that confirm our perceptions and beliefs.
I was a bit sad because visual poets make beautiful images but they don’t say anything and sound poets make very beautiful sounds but we can’t read them. So why is visual poetry not a score for sound poetry?
Like Max Weber, I think it’s dishonest and somewhat cheesy to use the lecture platform to voice one’s own political leanings. Students deserve better than to be harangued or have their liberal or conservative prejudices confirmed.
