Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Poetry. Cultural Writing. In THEORETICAL OBJECTS American poet Nick Piombino explores — through manifestos, talks, sayings, speeches, and autobiographical-like pieces — form and meaning, how through the very process of writing, of speaking, meaning is made real. As in the works of Gertrude Stein, Piombino transforms thought into the poetic process by means of a conceptual metamorphosis. Associative links are tracked across the ordinary boundaries of experience, then captured as they cluster into 'theoretical objects, unique configurations of written expression crystallized beyond the frozen forms of literary obsolesence,Theories are dreams we learn to believe/ To counter empty truths/ Which leave us cold.

Synopsis:

Theoretical Objects Nick Piombino American poet Nick Piombino explores "through manifestos, talks, sayings, speeches, and autobiographical-like pieces, " form and meaning, how through the very process of writing, of speaking, meaning is made real. As in the works of Gertrude Stein, Piombino discovers the significance of the world by writing about the insignificant associations that make up thought itself, that "makes up" meaning as conscious beings moving through experience.

About the Author

Nick Piombino (born October 5, 1942) is an American poet, essayist, artist and psychotherapist. Although he has been associated with poets from both the New York School of the 1960s and the Language Poets of the 1970s, Piombino's work is not easily classified, straddling not only poetic movements but the line between poetry and prose, verbal and visual, in challenging ways. His work across several genres is held together by the nature of time and duration. Piombino regularly collaborates with his wife, artist Toni Simon.
