Dear All--

some short things.

1) I gave the wrong time for Michael Palmer's reading at Wesleyan University. 
It's at 8 tomorrow, not 7.30.

2)  There was some interest in getting a sense of the range of Palmer's work
over the years.  The best I can offer is this site

It has several poems from across his body of work, including the poem "Sun,"
which was mentioned (and an excerpt was read) at our last session.

3) Lsst week we distributed copies of the tome The Alphabet, Ron Siliman's work
amassed over several decades (by the way, there is one copy left).  Because
it's so massive, I asked Silliman about what might be a way to prioritize our
reading.  He offered this list:

"Let's say A thru F, K&L, N, P, Q, R, S, U, V, W & X. As Huth points out, A thru
M equals only 28 percent of the book, so that this should still come in below 50
percent."  That's still a great deal, but we can discuss this on Friday.

Huth is Geof Huth, who is blogging is reading of Silliman's book.

4) Don't forget we meet again this Friday, 3-5 in Rm 116 of the WHC.

See you then,
Richard Deming
