Northern Wild Roses / Deth Interrupts Th Dansing free pdf A pioneer of sound, visual, and performance poetry - eschewing the artificial hierarchies of meaning and the privileging of things ("proper" nouns) over actions imposed on language by capital letters- the metric limitations imposed on the possibilities of expression by punctuation- and the illusion of formal transparency imposed on the written word by standard (rather than phonetic) spelling - Bissett composes his poems as scripts for pure performance. His primal rejection of all the limiting conventions of written language has allowed him to both maintain and foreground the appearance of any linguistic event as a living performance rather than backgrounding it(s breath [spirit]) as a "dead letter" in all of his work.
