Poem of the Week
December 11, 2016 to December 18, 2016

christian-bok

from CHAPTER I, for Dick Higgins
by Christian Bök

When we looked before at an excerpt from Christian Bök's Eunoia, which won the 2002 Griffin Poetry Prize, we pondered whether or not he approached his poetic output the way a gardener can produce a miniature version of a tree or shrub using the bonsai method. Are such constraints - in plants or in language - pleasing or artificial? Reactions and opinions vary.
