Further information:
"The 'Word Made Flesh' and its immediate predecessor, 'Through Light and the Alphabet', were both made as distinct formulations in response to theoretical issues in writing and ecriture. Both address the status of materiality in visual presentation of poetic work. Both are direct responses to the work of Jacques Derrida, and also, to the dictates and orthodoxies of many of the California Language Poets whose work and lives had been so intimately bound to mine. The typographic format of the 'Word Made Flesh' was meant to trip the eye, return one constantly to the plane of discourse, of material production. I made this book, and 'Through Light and the Alphabet', out of complete love of letters. Probably more than any other of my books, these two are absolute celebrations of the beauty and expressive capability of type."
