About this title


A critical text accompanied by Sieburth's translation of Michaux's essay Of Languages Signs in Action assesses what the encounter between Pound, Michaux, and Chinese ideogram might tell us about poetry as an act of making-and unmaking signs. Illustrated with Michaux ideograms.

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Sieburth quoting Michaux-- Later, the signs, certain signs. Signs speak to me. I would gladly draw them, but a sign is also a stop sign. And at this juncture there is still something I desire above all else. A continuum. A murmur without end, like life itself, the thing that keeps us going...I want my markings to be the very phrasing of life, but supple, deformable, sinuous.
