Jen Bervin's NETS handles erasure differently from other texts written by the same (or a similar) process. In erasing Shakespeare's sonnets--not all of the sonnets are contained in the finish text of NETS--Bervin leaves so very few words on each page so as to produce elegant, striking vignettes, snapshots of images or ideas. The compiled result is a little surreal, but very rewarding.

I used this text in a class I taught on found poetry, and thought it to be a perfect example of erasure. Highly recommend.

Jen Bervin is a stunning artist. For most of her projects she takes something that exists and simply adds glitter to it. Nets is unique for the reader who thought Shakespeare would never be a "must read." Nets takes an old world text that the average person has lost interest in and sprinkles it with shiny bits, making it interesting again.
