Dear Poeticians,

We have just two more sessions left for the semester: April 24 and  
May 1. In this note I will give details about the next session and  
then pass o information about two events.

On April 24th, we will be joined by Professor Steve Evans of UMaine,  
Orono. Evans will be talking about  "The Poetics of Phonotextuality"-- 
or the sound(s) of sounding poetry.  Evans will offer "a systematic  
introduction to an exciting new development in the field of poetics  
(and literary studies more generally), the emergence of  
'phonotextual' studies concerned with the analysis and interpretation  
of poems not just as printed texts but as voiced structures whose  
meaning can be 'sounded' as well as seen."

Evans is at the forefront of this field as the links below will  
attest.  This a session not to be missed

Evans has sent a list of audio links that will set up this  
conversation.  It is very important that people listen to the first  
one as that will take the place of any formal talk or paper.  It only  
takes about 50 minutes to listen to.  That way, when he joins us,  
everyone will have a sense of the topic.

This meeting will be 3-5 on Friday the 24th.  We will be meeting in  
the Beinecke again  so that Evans can play audiofiles and so forth.
