Poetry. "What good is poetry at a time like this?" Andrew Joron asks at the start of his book of poetry. "A kind of topological fold or failure (called a 'catastrophe' in mathematics) precedes the emergence- constitutes the emergency- of the New. If poetry 'makes language new, ' then it must be defined as the translation of emergency. Even politically engaged poetry represents (translates) the motion of social change more than it does the facts of social change"-FATHOM. Andrew Joron is also the author of SCIENCE FICTION, and THE REMOVES, both available from SPD.
