Recantorium

(a bacherol machine after Duchamp after Kafka) is a powerful new poem by Charles Bernstein (check out this video recording from the conference on “Conceptual Poetry & Its Others”, Poetry Center, University of Arizona Tucson, May 29, 2008). It’s in line with “Thank You For Saying Thank You” (With Strings), only “deeper” in its humor/agony. I found listening to it very addictive! & the discussion on it at Poetry Foundation’s “Harriet” blog is a piece of found poetry on its own right! – & while we are in Tucson, Marjorie Perloff makes good use of Northern European impetus (nypoesi.net, Aleksandr Skidan, Cia Rinne’s and my work) in this her keynote address there.
