Poetry. "Judith Goldman's book makes me very uncomfortable. She is so angry and she sets up so many barriers—brackets, slashes, cross-outs and the like—that she makes reading as complicated a proposition as locating the 'ethical good' in a corrupt political climate. She restores two visions at once: the avant-garde's insistance that poetic form be politically motivated and not just 'fun,' and the conviction that freedom is possible 'only' when we admit that we are not free"—Jennifer Moxley.
