Ron Silliman, Once Again, Is Not Fucking Around With You Bullshit Poets

RON SILLIMAN ON ERASURE IN 2009:

…I’m not convinced that we need to have an “erased” edition of every major work of the English language, even tho I’m quite willing to concede that Holmes has done a fine version with this text. After all, you could take these same materials and just as readily end up with something entitled THE PO OF Y SON. Do we really need EAVES OF ASS or OWL or any of the other “edited” masterworks that must surely be in the offing? What is the value of a gesture when taken out of context?

indeed, ya’ll, what is the value of a gesture when taken out of context? not a whole fuck of a lot given that Eaves of Ass is already the title of a literary work.
