Overview


Literary Criticism. Second Edition. Co-published with Nightwood Editions, Toronto, NORTH OF INTENTION is thedefinitive collection of Steve McCaffery's critical writing, spanning theyears in which he solidified his reputation as English Canada's mostaccomplished experimental writer. It is a must for any serious student ofcontemporary poetry and poetics and a testament to McCaffery's persistentrefusal to barter with NAFTA-like terms of traditional exegesis. "NORTH OF INTENTION is a panoramic, erotic, anti-accumulative collectionof essays centering on the formally investigative North American poetryof the 1970s and 1980s. McCaffery's high-theoretical performances reclaimliterary theory for engaged literary practices"—Charles Bernstein.
