From the Publisher"Juliana Spahr's remarkable poetic mind is the refractive prism of her useful and inspiring criticism. This book makes a strong case for the long-standing American tradition of reading as a form of liberation, but it makes it in terms appropriate to Spahr's vision of a utopian democracy of active readers in today's complex cultural environments. Her engagements with Stein, Hejinian, Andrews, Mullen, and Cha enact an informed self-invention of meaning that is both richly nuanced model of agency and constructive affirmation for our inextricably intertwined poly-ethnic-racial-lingual world."
