Moving right along though, this week we're leaving the Aleatoric poets and moving into the Conceptualists. Conceptual poetry has its heart in the notion of unoriginality. The concept (hence the label) takes priority over the execution. The first poet we're studying is Kenneth Goldsmith. In the following little clip, taken at The White House (with Michele Obama as the listener), Goldsmith describes himself as "the most boring writer who has ever lived...", and perhaps proves it with his 900 page book Day, created from rewriting the NY Times. And yet, as Kenny G says in the clip below, there is a kind of freeing quality to this process: "The whole world is yours to write." The burden of originality has been lifted.
