Charles Bernstein / American Innovator by James Shivers (Open Access)
37 Blue Editions (digital edition, 2019)
In many ways, James Shivers’s More Numerous of: A Kinetic Approach is an important contribution not simply because it is the most comprehensive engagement of Bernstein’s work that exists so far, but because Shivers is so resolutely interested in the pedagogical himself. … Shivers does not simply end at determining the work is difficult, complex. He asks instead what we can make out of that complexity, what we can take from a text that resists us.
