Poetry. On Serge Gavronsky's collection of poetry called ANDORTHE: "Serge Gavronsky sets out to test Zukofsky's dictum that 'a case can be made for the poet giving some of his life to the use of the words the and a; both of which are weighted with as much epos and historical destiny as a man can perhaps resolve' - although in this case Gavronsky torques his dense, intense post-Objectivist braid around two conjunctions and the definite article. ANDORTHE writes poems within a poem and against and through "A" and the Cantos, the Holocaust and the Upper West Side, academese and Brooklyn schtick, post-structuralism and rides on the 1/9. Epos and historical destiny - und so weiter - indeed!" -Michael Golston.
