Write The First Customer Review

Borrowing the title of J.L. Austin's important philosophical tract, Joan Retallack seeks through poetry answers to Austin's questions about the relationship between saying and doing. Retallack explores what poetry means and how poetry interests with other intellectual forms -- charts, drafts, encyclopedias, dictionaries, lexicons and games.
