Poetry. "Craig Dworkin produces a poetry rich and strange, a counterpart of French Oulipo but with a characteristically American pragmatic inflection. Dworkin takes seriously Wittgenstein's axiom that there are no gaps in grammar, that everything is already there if we will only see the connections"—Marjorie Perloff.
Craig Dworkin is the author of five books of poetry and several chapbooks, including Dure (Cuneiform, 2004), STRAND (Roof, 2005), PARSE (Atelos, 2008), The Perverse Library (Information As Material, 2010), MOTES (Roof, 2011), Chapter XXIV (Red Butte Press, 2013), and ALKALI (Counterpath Press, 2015). He has also published two scholarly monographs, Reading the Illegible (Northwestern UP, 2003) and No Medium (MIT, 2013), and edited five collections: Architectures of Poetry, with María Eugenia Díaz Sánchez (Rodopi, 2004); Language to Cover a Page: The Early Writing of Vito Acconci (MIT, 2006); THE CONSEQUENCE OF INNOVATION: 21ST-CENTURY POETICS (Roof, 2008); The Sound of Poetry/ The Poetry of Sound, with Marjorie Perloff (Chicago, 2009); and Against Expression: An Anthology of Conceptual Writing, with Kenneth Goldsmith (Northwestern, 2011).
