Poetry. Latino/Latina Studies. "PUBLIC DOMAIN is First Rate, worthy of Rerereading and Full-Tilt Gesamkunstwerke Treatment, and, rest assured, will never rest. Which is to say: the interplay of text/orality, theory/playfulness, concrete/lyric appearing in every form imaginable/heretofore unimagined, adds up to the most adventurous Conceptual Mystery Poem I have ever read/performed. I cannot imagine poetry without her"—Bob Holman.
