Postmodern poet and critic Gerald Burns bridges the gap between the experimental writing of the 19th-century Romantics and the early 20th-century modernists. As Burns says, many of the pieces collected here "enact what they doto save time." Only one is a formal lecture. Three began as book reviews and the rest are prose records of investigations that are informed by a much richer historical sensea broader horizon of thinking and writingthan is usually found in modern writing on meaning, reference, and language as the medium of art.Burns, Gerald is the author of 'Thing About Language' with ISBN 9780809315284 and ISBN 0809315289.
