Published in 1933 by Hogarth, Flush is an experiment in biography, using the medium of a pet dog, the eponymous character, to examine the imagined life of the poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning.

The words that appear and disappear in these works, both type- and hand- written, likewise have a protean quality, they seem to be being made before our eyes from the chaos out of which language does actually come; word strings that are generative in the same way that those strings of recombinant amino acids in the warm pre-Cambrian seas were, we are told, generative: of life itself.” from the introduction by Martin Edmond, author of Luca Antara.< Less
