Poetry. Daniel Davidson (1952-1996) emerged from punk music in the1980s as a poet of singular talent and originality. culture was Davidson's own title for his "collected books," a poetical critique of productivised social relations. One question was foremost in his mind: just how far can experimental poetry be construed as direct political action? This book is the first collection of all the culture poetry. "Politics for Dan Davidson was a site-specific performance art...This book is his masterpiece"--Benjamin Friedlander. "He approached the book almost more like a method actor than a poet--the book for him being more of an event or conceptual art project in many ways than `pure poetry'"--Gary Sullivan.
