Ron Silliman, a 21st-Century Canon, sees poetry in the involuted dance of duality: cooked/raw, quietude/oppositional. . .
a complex dithryamb with mirrors, where the raw is really more cooked than the cooked, and the Hegemon-That-Will-Not-Speak-Its-Name is flanked by ambiguous liminal guardians, like M.Moore & K.Shapiro. . .
all a new iteration in the tango of hegemonic Authority : made plain in his claim that Quietude is really a subset of the larger set Poetry, for which, in contrast, the raw/oppositional is the true, the representative, bearer of the torch. . .
It's really there, says Ron, this hegemonic coagulation called Quietude : even though it hides behind namelessness, and the branding of its subsidiary spin-offs. . .
What Ron doesn't tell you is that if there weren't a "quietude" formation, there would be no need for an "oppositional" avant-garde formation. . . "quietude" is the essential building-block of "experiment". . .
presto bingo-bongo, it's all in your mind. . . in the 21st century "experiment" will replace "quietude"! Zazaam !!!
