Comments Off on Re: reading the post-modern
Day 1 of 3 is in for the symposium. Amanda’s got some of her highlights up. I haven’t scratched a thought together yet. Lots of notes, some of which I hope to be legible.
I took a few photos tho:
Ian Rae on Anne Carson and Cheryl Cowdy Crawford on reading the suburb as post modern Canadian space.
And it’s almost time to go out again for more. Even with my front muscles compensating for my back I was glad I still had the knack of translating jargon and getting that syllable count: meaning compression down to a just the straight gist ratio. Ah yes, this is why I embrace plain speech and flights of getting lost in wordage both.
