A Conversation with David Antin is a four-month e-mail exchange between the poet/essayist Charles Bernstein and artist/poet/critic David Antin. Ideas on art, poetry, performance, and the life of one of the most singular thinkers in America are discussed. The combination of the speed of electronic transmission and the rigors of writing as opposed to talking, made it, in Antin's words, "a cross between the 18th-century and the 21st." This book presents the entirety of their dialogue, wholly uncut, and is an essential document about a man whose thought and writing has helped define the avant-garde for nearly half a century.
