  • i haven't finished it, so it is unfair to judge, but i found this book to be impenetrable, full of bafflegab. my problem is that i haven't read some of the initial sources which are quoted so heavily at the beginning. on the other hand, the book raises the need for a new model of critique for contemporary poetry. perhaps someone can take this on in a more objective, less jargony manner.
