Gregg Biglieri : Reading Keats to Sleep

This is a poem that is wonderful to read – especially aloud – over and over. I keep finding new things in it, line by line, phrase by phrase, sentence by sentence. For a book that is, in fact printed on a single sheet of paper and just 21 stanzas long, this is a remarkably rich and intense project.

— Ron Silliman

Nick Piombino : The Boundary of Theory

The Boundary of Theory consists of two parts. The first is an essay Piombino presented in Charles Bernstein’s “Blank Seminar” on September 28, 2000. After class, Piombino joined Christian Bok, Darren Wershler-Henry, Thom Donovan, Bernstein and me for dinner at Scotch n’ Sirloin. A few days later, he generously agreed to continue the converstation by way of an e-interview which is published here under the title “The Boundaries of Memory.”
