New essay in Routledge Companion to Experimental Literature

I’m very pleased to have an essay of mine included in a great-looking new collection, The Routledge Companion to Experimental Writing, edited by Joe Bray, Alison Gibbons, and Brian McHale (Routledge 2012).

It’s a big book, filled with great stuff, including chapters by Charles Bernstein, R.M. Berry, Brian McHale, N. Katherine Hayles, Tyrus Miller, Ben Lee, Amy Elias.  My piece is “Found Poetry, ‘Uncreative Writing,’ and the Art of Appropriation,” and it discusses the history of appropriation, sampling, borrowing, and other such practices in literature and the arts, before turning to contemporary developments like the Conceptual poetry of Kenneth Goldsmith and the movement known as Flarf.
