Christian Bok, Eunoia

Been reading Eunoia--Christian Bok. Love what he did w/language and/or word as seeming mathematical equivalent. Created visual elements out of sonnet structure; fractals from combination of vowels. And each section of the book has a theme, each vowel chapter contains a representation of a limited amount of characteristics. Very interesting read so far. Interesting to have sat across from him at dinner at the Frank Davey/Poetics conference recently in London, Ontario too. Quiet guy, except for the occasional sudden giggle that seemed to extend past our table. Fun. And as unexpected as the sound poetry he read. Beat box stuff of his own, and another fella's monk-type meditations.
