BeschreibungQuill pen, linotype, computer: does "how" you write affect "what" you write? In "with wax," derek beaulieu spurns the sentence and woos the phrase, the image and the language of printing, weaving fragments together to address the question of how publishing and printing affect writing.
The result is a series of poems - marvellous hybrids of visual, Language and lyrical poetry - that are sure to im"press."

Pressestimmen'With wax explores the history of making the Word material - from cave painting to movable type to word processing - and shows what you can do with language when you get it on your hands. In these lively literary landscapes and poetic portraits, derek beaulieu dissects signification, worrying the morpheme and exploding the grapheme. Watch your eyes.'
