This triology of poetry manuscripts includes poems that add personal emotion and interest into what has become quite dry experimental poetry, and visual and sonic interest back into melodramatic narrative / confessional modes. While its main appeal is to play and pleasure, this verse may prove challenging for beginning readers of poetry while it will interest those who generally do not read poetry but read classics, science & technology, experimental fiction, criticism / critical theory, and philosophy.

From the Publisher:

Catherine Daly s constructed a reader s playground by vatic, cathartic rapine of canonical texts including the "Amoretti" of Edmund Spenser, the Greek Anthology, and the Norton Anthology of English Literature; religious women s dictation, testimony, and writing; wireless communication, slide shows, truth tables, and Boolean algebra; high culture sculpture and junk culture celebrities and plots. Included in the three sections of DaDaDa is hagiography of interior decorators and fashion designers, OuLiPonian manipulations of anonymous medieval prayers about the passion, a "woman s epic" poem based on the writings of Marguerite Porete which erases, creative etymology, quotes from female country and western lyricists, and instructions for making a Palm Pilot vibrate, all ultimately examining truth, freedom, art, craft, and other ideas. Daly rewrites as reading, as performance, as decoding, recoding, and encoding. This post-language poetry is devoted to sound play and pleasure. It is religious poetry underpinned by fervid atheism, literary criticism as heresy, confessional verse biography, serious poetry riddled with cheap puns.

About the Author:
