Addressing many interrelated matters, Bernstein strikes from the position of the general public highbrow to the poetics of scholarly prose, from vernacular modernism to idiosyncratic postmodernism, from id politics to the resurgence of the cultured, from cultural reports to poetry as a functionality artwork, from the small press flow to the internet. alongside the best way he offers "close listening" to such poets as Charles Reznikoff, Laura using, Susan Howe, Ezra Pound, Allen Ginsberg, and Gertrude Stein, in addition to a clean viewpoint on L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E, the journal he coedited that turned a fulcrum for a brand new wave of North American writing.
In his passionate protection of an activist, cutting edge poetry, Bernstein by no means departs from the culturally engaged, linguistically complicated, but frequently very humorous writing that has characterised his special approach to poetry for over 20 years. delivering a few of his so much bold paintings yet—essays in poetic traces, prose with poetic motifs, interviews miming speech, speeches veering into song—Charles Bernstein's My Way illuminates the most recent advancements in modern poetry with its personal contributions to them.
