Transcendent Topologies: Structuralism and Visual Writing

ByTom Hibbard

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Is Structuralism a useful tool for engaging with the new visual poetry? Thomas Hibbard thinks so and this book is the fascinating and thoughtful result. As Jim Leftwich says in his Afterword, thinking about visual poetry is as good a way as any of understanding the world we live in: “Tom Hibbard's book, TRANSCENDENT TOPOLOGIES: STRUCTURALISM AND VISUAL WRITING, is as political as you are. It has no other choice. Read it and take notes (handwritten notes, like James Comey and his associates). Track down the books he writes about. Teach yourself how to do what the authors of those books do . Write essays about their work, about your work, about Tom Hibbard's work, about James Comey's work, Michael Cohen's work. Visual writing is trying to teach us one thing, over and over, in a thousand different ways: we live in a shifting constellation; we must read it and write it that way.”
