Sample text

Moralizing and nationalist overtones of the crisis discourse are out of sync with the texts on which it professes to comment. The same is true for the mobilization of prescriptive notions such as poetry’s “alignment” (䍄৥), meaning the speaker’s preferred direction of poetry’s development, often coupled with multiple oughts and shoulds, and of “optimism” and “pessimism” as critical positions, implying dated judgmental perspectives that block out much of what is going on.
