Extraordinary Discourse 069

Deeper Current

What Joyce did to prose and Pound did to poetry, in my opinion, made those arts contemporary with both quantum physics and the films I liked. They had broken linear order into luminous fragments--quanta--which they reassembled into synergetic wholes--like a Bucky Fuller design... to read them involved stepping outside subject-predicate order into the modes of thought you find in differential calculus or in the montages of directors like Wells, Eisenstein, Kurasawa.
