Dr Rochelle Simmons (Department of English, University of Otago) will

Bowery in Two Inadequate Descriptive Systems (1974-5) in the
terms of visual poetry: as a work preoccupied with problems of incommensurability,
and the ethical and poetic limits of representation. Co-sponsored by Hue and Cry journal.
