Written by inserting the discussions of and around contemporary poetics, particularly LangPo, into preexisting (outdated) critical essays (see: Poe), these essays are forced to follow the Mapquest directions of an alien highway system.

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).More about Benjamin Friedlander...
