remembering the objectivists

In the fall of 2005, Harvey Shapiro and Norman Finkelstein came together - to read their poems in tandem, and to talk about the objectivists, which, in Harvey's case, entailed remembering them through years of personal as well as aesthetic interaction. Bob Perelman moderated the discussion about the objectivists, and here are some audio recordings of a few highlights:

[] on the Jewishness of the objectivists

[] on reading Zukofsky

[] on Lorine Niedecker.

And there's more. Consult our Shapiro-Finkelstein page.
