The Poetry Integral

I made the following a month-and-a-half or two months ago for Redactions: Poetry, Poetics, & Prose, but what a shame to just keep it confined to those pages. So I’m sharing it here along with the note that appears in Redactions.

Poetry Integral

The poetry integral on page 5 [above] is something editor Tom Holmes created. It is based on the following lines from “A12” in Louis Zukofsky’s A:

I’ll tell you
About my poetics –


An integral
Lower limit speech
Upper limit music

– Louis Zukofsky from A (“A12”, p 138)

I had to add the “Poetry” else what is it an integral of? I can’t remember my calculus well enough, but it should probably be f(poetry) dpoetry, but that doesn’t look as good.//
