Poetry. "A central, or maybe the central theme of this book is a matter of defining words, but what we have is hardly a dictionary. Instead, the idea is to underline or set up particular words within a context of subjective linguistic experience so that the 'meanings' created are protean, slippery, and endlessly suggestive. As words really are, in spite of any attempt to 'define' them. The numerous devices and methods used to set up the lexicon under examination are constantly variable and this process is one of the delights of the book. Part two takes this a step further, as it seems to be a kind of cyber-distillation of the processes in part one. In short, this book, with its contrasting mix of voices and points of views, is well worth investigating and re-investigating numerous times"--John M. Bennett.
