Judith Goldman's VOCODER is new perspective, a new time in Stein's sense that a time is articulated differently in each generation, that is perspective of the way time's seen--Leslie Scalapino. Judith Goldman's book makes me very uncomfortable. She is so angry, and she sets up so many barriers--brackets, slashes, cross-outs and the like--that she makes reading as complicated a proposition as locating the ethical good in a corrupt political climate. She restores two visions at once: the avant-garde's insistence that poetic form be politically motivated and not just 'fun,' and the conviction that freedom is possible 'only' when we admit that we are not free--Jennifer Moxley.
