Vocoder: Judith Goldman

less than 1 minute read

This looks like an interesting book.

Judith Goldman’s VOCODER is new perspective, a new time in Stein’s sense that a time is articulated differently in each generation, that is perspective of the way time’s seen –Leslie Scalapino.

Judith Goldman’s book makes me very uncomfortable. She is so angry, and she sets up so many barriers–brackets, slashes, cross-outs and the like–that she makes reading as complicated a proposition as locating the ethical good in a corrupt political climate. She restores two visions at once: the avant-garde’s insistence that poetic form be politically motivated and not just ‘fun,’ and the conviction that freedom is possible ‘only’ when we admit that we are not free –Jennifer Moxley.
