n.— «For the past few years some poets have approached Google as a detournement machine, using the search function as a phrase generator and assembling the results into cut-up poems. (In some circles the method and poems go by the name of “flarf.”) As bewildering or irritating as spam, this work is defiantly typographic and can be downright impossible to read aloud, amplified or not.» —“Difficult loves” by John Palattella Nation (U.S.) Oct. 4, 2004.
