I came across this book title in a graduate poetry workshop in the Bay area. I was intrigued enough to order it. It just came today. I've been waiting. I'll let you know.
Written by inserting the discussions of and around contemporary poetics, particularly LangPo, into preexisting (outdated) critical essays (see: Poe), these essays are forced to follow the Mapquest directions of an alien highway system. You'll be surprised at how successful, and often provocative they become.

I'm a poet, critic, and editor, and make my living teaching American Studies and Poetics at the University of Maine. I'm also a dabbler in translation, from German (with a dictionary, making a lot of errors) and Italian (with my wife, who is a native speaker).
