On September 23, Questions of Poetics was the focus of an intense and productive discussion among a group of faculty and students from the English Department at UC Berkeley. The event was introduced by Lyn Hejinian and continued with response papers from Charles Altieri, Dan Blanton, Jane Gregory, and Andrew Key. Participants were provided with pdfs of the introduction and the first part of chapter 2, on “Language Writing and Late Capitalism.” The discussion centered on key claims of the book as a whole and of that chapter, including: radical particularity, textual materiality, period style, reception history, and recent controversies in poetics. The conversation continued later in the day at the Beta Lounge, followed by a book launch at Moe’s Books that evening.
