Synopsis: An essay anthology.

From the Back Cover: Most of us, most of the time, use language the way we use windows; we look "through" words to ideas, objects, sensations, landscapes of meaning. Occasionally that window glass becomes a mirror, and hearing our own words, we suddenly recognize something about ourselves. And sometimes words become objects of interest in themselves. Suddenly we notice them--we look at them, not through them. We see and hear them the way poets do, as having a certain vitality and delightfulness independent of their "real world" referents. This may be the closest modernism and postmodernism bring us to a moment of grace: the self-referentiality of language may sometimes appear not as a closed system where meaning is simply constructed or a drably utilitarian system of reference, but as a dance--words at play--words not just meaning or reporting or chronicling or marching in syntactic formation, but performing themselves, sounding, echoing, evoking ripple upon ripple of association and feeling, moving in figure-eights and sidelong slides rather than left to right in a line. Freed of their daily functionality, words flit and land in odd places like butterflies, or hover like hummingbirds in the general vicinity of some thought that provides at best only a temporary resting place. -- Marilyn Chandler McEntyre
