    NOTE The below review is basically obsolete b c of info rc vd from Chris Mason following this Any reader of this review shd also read Chris s comment to get a fuller perspective I accept Chris s comment that people published by pod books weren t chosen b c of their grant getting status The publishing on bks by Pierre Joris Allen Fischer supports that Nonetheless, I leave my original review MOSTLY but not entirely as is b c it helps the reader understand Chris comment b c it provides info of relevance ORIGINAL REVIEW somewhat edited One of the 4 bks that I know of published by the unfortunately short lived pod books I ve already reviewed Bruce Andrews pod books Love Songs As I try to make clear every once in a while, these reviews are often just chapters or paragraphs in an ongoing rumination that often has little to do w the bk supposedly under scrutiny here This is particularly the case now I m not going to say anything about Bernstein s writing wch isn t meant as a slight of Charles What I am going to say something about is what motivates who gets published by who m I 1st got into something somewhat related a little in my review of Batworth s poetry bk by mentioning how my personal relationship w the author might influence the review then wrote about it in my comments back forth w writer Bruce Stater in response to HIS response to my review of a bk called L I N K L A G E Marshall Reese Kirby Malone were both writers heavily interested in sound visual poetry language writing in the mid to late 70s They started e pod magazine pod books to further their involvement in this interest However, I don t think it s unfair to say that they had grant getting interests in mind too again, read Chris s comment following b c, in the light of it, what I ve written here IS probably unfair Language Writing was the academic thrill of the mnth to grant givers at the time In the 1979 80 NEA Fellowships for Creative Writers, at least 14 of the recipients were associated w language writing SO, it s the late 1970s Kirby Marshall were choosing who to publish pod books by I m fairly certain that e pod pod books was supported by grant money probably from the NEA so keeping it all w in the community heightened the chances of grant decider s acceptability Charles Bruce were the publishers of L A N G U A G E magazine wch was enjoying a prominent reputation at the time wch had substantial participation by many writers They were also recipients of NEA grants for 1979 80 as was Marshall who pod also published a bk by 3 of the 4 pod s were thus by NEA creative writer grant recipients the 4th was by Chris Mason who was part of the same collective that Kirby Marshall were but Fischer Joris weren t NEA grant recipients but I didn t know about their bks In Chris s case, the grant was gotten for publishing Widemouth Tapes the audio arm of the Merzaum Collective publishing empire that pod etc was also a part of I think all the above mentioned folks do interesting work I think Chris Mason, esp, is an excellent unique writer My point is that decisions were probably made for economic reasons as much as for critical ones By the 1981 82 NEA season it s possible that only one writer associated w language writing got the grant Language Writing was no longer the flavor of the mnth Kirby had moved onto theater by then, Marshall had moved onto other things too Whether either of these guys have spent much time writing since then I don t know Don t misunderstand, both Kirby Marshall have always done sincere interesting work w a political bent that s rooted in current concerns But what people don t see who are witnessing such things as bk publishing from the outside is that it s not only the mainstream popular press that has economic pressures determining content Navigating thru the grant world involves alotof of the same pressures just disguised Were their other writers at the time whose work wd ve been even phenomenally of the moment theoretically technically who might ve been a better choice for a pod book
