John Hall:
With wonderfully patient intelligence, and without

ever succumbing to polemic,
 ( I have not read the book and ... am interested but I wonder the reviewer means by 'not succumbing to polemic.'___________________
__________________Is this not to put Deleuze?guattarian ideas by into the literary box?



Jon Clay puts to work the lexicon of Deleuze (and Guattari) on a question that has haunted modernist poetics: what is it that

(This is new? Since when has modernist poetics been haunted by Guattari or Deleuze's ideas? And on the other hand of the double articulatiin..

poems do when you read them, especially when they are “difficult”? Very carefully, he sets out the terms and, just as carefully, he demonstrates their

practicality through reading poems, many of them “recalcitrant”, by contemporary UK-based poets,


including Andrea Brady, the late Douglas Oliver, J.H. Prynne and Denise Riley.
(I dont know the work of these authors)

His close readings confirm (that dubious term and its liteary connotations 'close' reading.. its oftenbeen a term of closing down not Opening Out  )

the validity both of the method – one that is necessarily self-unsettling – and of the poems thus encountered.
This book is a very welcome contribution to the poetics and pragmatics of reading.


It shows how it is possible to say what it is that poems do (This statement makes me wanna read the book)


and how this

is not the same as saying what they (seem to) say,
               (a reading then that discusses the technicalities )


all the while arguing that another(’s) reading would be a different reading and thus call,


perhaps, for another writing. (this reviewer is so tentative as if he was fearful to come right out
say WRITE DIFFERENT
___________________________

____________Id like to suggest far reading in contrast to 'close' ..... far reading is the counterparting to further writing...a s writi ng is the 

mac hine to outside the text and its bundles of Joy
and its promise to return  ~
