Cornelia Barber on WITHDRAWN


There is always a re-publicization. In a poem like “All I Wanted Was To Be In A Band” we watch the poet, Thom’s process transform from personal to public and in questioning this transformation he questions the “public” itself. The fantasy public. The white public. The capital public. The patriarchal public. The public that both makes and unmakes this book.
