Composed as a series of improvisations, this is a modular essay that examines, ponders, and responds to the radical poetics of Charles Bernstein's work from multiple perspectives, including dysraphism, aphorism, wit, and echopoetics. It also situates Bernstein in the long tradition of innovative American poetics extending from Ezra Pound and Gertrude Stein to Charles Olson and Susan Howe.
