Zekowski, Arlene
This book, written in an informal dialogue style, develops the thesis that of all the significant forms of art and communication, language alone has remained bound by an outdated, rigid structure--"command grammar"--that inhibits thought and expression. The book explains how language may be freed through use of Neo-Narrative, an "open structure" language that is "non-lineal spatial, plastic, geodetic, in a word, grammarless." Neo-Narrative "declares war on" the linear sentence and uses words not in predetermined ways but in flexible patterns in which the words can form their own "happenings." The book includes a Neo-Narrative sampler, excerpts from selected criticism by and about the author and her partner, Stanley Berne, and a selected bibliography of the author's writings. (GW)
