An invitation to reading strategies beyond my instinctive straight-forward, A to Z approach. These are exotic strategies, which seek the codifying agent relative to the authors cited. Vocabulary is the first clue, grammar a far-distant second, though I have to say it's the sensual pleasure of reading these poems aloud that most attracts me.
--Gil Ott

Dennis Barone questions the concept of Unity, be it personal, political or grammatical. The sonnets represent a political and autobiographical service and search.
--Susan Howe
