blogger is justly overtaxed today; in ref to new brualism -- the curators of the new brutalism series I read in don't know; a lot of people ask me what it is; the reason I looked at the new brutalism architecture defn -- the one I was familiar with -- is to retrofit one -- I think then we see that there *could be* a new brutalist poetry that is eco (or context)-aware and theory-driven first, and thus not deliberately aesthetically pleasing, styled, or decorated first. the reception of new brutalist architecture suggests that the success of this poetry would lay in its site-specificity, in its servicableness & appropriateness -- that it will be a rare poem that succeeds, not the works of a rare poet -- a back at ya to the auteur crowd?
