""Unoriginal Genius" showcases, yet again, why Marjorie Perloff is the most respected expositor for the avant-garde in poetry. She demonstrates why lauded, modern poets (many of whom have questioned the values of both ''the original'' and ''the creative'') might prefer instead to ''cheat'' on their assignments by handing in poems that steal words and remix lines, verbatim, from the databases of the "deja dit". I recommend that every genius read this omnibus--then copy its poetics."--Christian Bok, author of "Eunoia"
--Christian Bok --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
