Notes on Jack Spicer’s Vancouver Lecture 3: Poetry in Process and Book of Magazine Verse (1965)

Beginning a “lecture” w/ questions

The idea of risk

Does it only matter if the “basic thing” comes through?
– it is what comes thru from the outside Martian
– basic thing = strangeness?
– basic thing = aura?
= the melody? –> no, part of the furniture
does not equal the structure

is the basic thing attainable to the reader? No.

Derrida — Knowing the thing is about the relationship between the “knower” and the “thing” than the thing

“The preparation for dictation”
