Poetry. "In For A New Novel Robbe-Grillet has written that in the sort of new writing he is proposing the author totally proclaims his need of the reader's cooperation as an 'active, conscious, creative assistance.' What he asks of the reader is no longer to receive readymade a world completed, full, closed upon itself, but on the contrary to participate in a creation, to invent, in his or her turn, the work and the world and thus learn to invent one's own life. This begins to describe the process of Susan Gevirtz's work. She is a writer of great seriousness, intuition and imagination who asks you at each turn to participate in the reinvention of a language"--Kathleen Fraser.
