The price she pays ... is twofold: the question of gender will be erased, declared a non-issue, and at the same time it is less likely than if her signature were male that she will become one of the stars", Marianne DeKoven, "Women's Review of Books" (4.2) 1986, p.13, "What kind of cultural work is a literary text doing? is a question that should be more frequently, and more complexly, asked of writers and critics of experimental writing", Caroline Bergvall in "Assembling Alternatives", Romana Huk (ed), Wesleyan Univ Press, 2003, p.353 "Almost all readers can perceive that these innovative poems immediately incite a question: Is this really a poem?", Peter Middleton in "Assembling Alternatives", Romana Huk (ed), Wesleyan Univ Press, 2003, p.128 "From the United States it can sometimes seem that the struggles of exploratory poetry in Britain today duplicate the struggles of "language poetry" ten of fifteen years ago", p.148, Keith Tuma in "Assembling Alternatives", Romana Huk (ed), Wesleyan Univ Press, 2003 "If a single question can be said to have synchronised the American poetic avant-garde between 1970 and 1989, it was surely the question 'what is language?'", p.88, Steve Evans in "Assembling Alternatives", Romana Huk (ed), Wesleyan Univ Press, 2003 "the argument against the viability of the avant-garde today rests on the assumption that there is no real resistance to the new, no stable norm from which the defiant artist may depart", David Lehman, "The Last Avant Garde: The Making of the New York School of Poets", Anchor, 1999 "If we are all postmodernists, we are none of us avant-garde, for postmodernism is the institutionalisation of the avant-garde", David Lehman, "The Last Avant Garde: The Making of the New York School of Poets", Anchor, 1999, p.11 "Born of the institutions of Imperial French culture, the avant-garde has ever since maintained a type of parasitic relationship with the dominant apparatuses of official taste and of moral and intellectual permission - even if this relationship fashions itself as an 'adversary relation'", Louis Armand, "The Avant-Garde in the Era of Post-Ideology", Louis Armand (ed.), "Litteraria Pragensia", 2006. p.6 "[the avant-garde] gains its special status [through its critique of] the main body of the culture to which it is reacting", Roger Shattuck, "The Innocent Eye: On Modern Literature and the Arts", Farrar, Strauss, and Giroux, 1984, p.74. "There was rapid transfer and interaction between different countries and different capitals, and the deep mode of the [early avant-garde], as in modernism, was precisely this mobility across frontiers", Raymond Williams, "The Politics of the Avant-Garde", 1989, p.59 innovative writing is marked by two central concerns: 1) it "offers the perspective of the multiple 'I'" and, 2) it "recognizes the importance of the materials of writing to writing itself, an engagement with its medium", L.
