I have a bit of a fetish going on with a little book called Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace. If you are unaware of who he is or what the book is about you can learn more here, here or here.
Well, apparently there is someone that is doing eraser poetry on every single page on this estraordinary 1200 page novel. Now, admittedly, I am not a poetry nut. I love me some T.S. Elliot (Lovesong of J. Alfred Prufrock is my Infinite Jest equivalent in the poetry world) and possibly some E.E. Cummings. Obviously I dig Shakespeare at a level that is probably just really unhealthy. But outside of that, I’m a bit at a loss when it comes to good or bad poetry. What do I know?
But everyone of these found poems are gorgeous to me. The poems juxtaposition with the perfectly selected photos? Brilliance. Jenni Baker, well done mam.
If you’d like to track Jenni as she continues this progress going forward you can watch along with me here: http://erasinginfinite.com/
