Co-produced with Spectacular Diseases in London. A highly subjective "Poetics" which could be described as a series of meditations on the idea of metaphor, that is, on how processes, acts, and things are all inter-related. The "poetics" comes in as an on-going discussion of the problems language creates in perceiving this unity of the world, while at the same time being essential to its perception: "The actualities of movement reflected in the visual isolation of speech, as connectedness interpenetrates with the thing in its location of variable presence. Beyond the diagrams of possibility, the styles and postures of being elongate through plasticity (variation) into arrangements of the one." Or, as Taylor puts it in the introduction: "So making love is analogous for something else, and that is what this is all about." This is fascinating reading. Includes a bibliography.--John M. Bennett
