Can we, as poets, create texts about how we think and feel by using the language of how others think and feel? Can we compose with the new streams of language flowing in and around us (e.g. the ephemera and minutia of everyday email) to express our own place in the world? In a well-informed gesture beyond Baudrillard's null set, Noah Eli Gordon's book-length conceptual poem, INBOX, opens a new chapter of intimacy--his, yours, mine, ours. Welcome to a new subjectivity; welcome to a new way to say from the heart.----Robert FittermanReview:
It was the Russian Formalist critics who first noted that one of the historic roles of art is to incorporate new aspects of society into the art itself. Without which any genre would very quickly lose much of its connectedness with the life of the community from which it springs. Inbox is exactly what its title suggests, a work of art that includes email received by the author, albeit written entirely by his correspondents, over a period of time. Sociologically, Inbox is fascinating. It presents the highest order of conceptual poetics just by being itself.
