The New Sentence

The original talk

given

September 16, 1979

at the San Francisco Art Institute

in Bob Perelman’s Talk Series


The later essay was based upon this talk
which was improvised
following a rough outline
with a stack of books
to which I could refer


It’s interesting to note
that this version
is just ten minutes shorter
than Charles Olson’s
“endless” reading @ Berkeley

1965

Special thanks to Bob Perelman for hosting the talk
& making a recording
while he & Francie Shaw were also dealing
with a one-week old newborn
& to James Sherry & David Sternbach
for editing the later draft
into something approaching coherence
