THE DARK WOULD (Apple Pie Editions, 2013) at the BBC
THE DARK WOULD language art anthology will feature on the BBC literary programme The Verb at 10pm Friday April 19. Listen online to the programme live, or via podcast at:
An excerpt from Cutting Time with a Knife will be in the first volume of the anthology, and some new material that remixes CTwaK into different molecular structures will be in the second volume. I’m happy to be included with many of my favorite writers and artists.
THE DARK WOULD, edited by Philip Davenport, gathers work by over 100 contributors including some of the most noted artists and poets alive today. This is a moment in time when poets and many artists share the same primary material: language. The anthology is split between two volumes – paper and virtual. Many of the works here are in two parts, speaking to one another across the paper/virtual divide, as a metaphor of dis/embodiment, considering time, mortality and human traces in the natural world.
As Editor Philip Davenport writes: “THE DARK WOULD asks what it is to live in a body now, knowing that one day we won’t be here. Perhaps this is best done by people for whom language is itself a state of between-ness. Here is a gathering of artists who use language and poets who are in some wider sense artists.”
