Susan Howe speaking at Univ Paris VII, Nov 2009, by Jennifer K Dick
ANNOUNCING FREE ONLINE the newest issue of "SEVENTEEN SECONDS: a journal of poetry and poetics" This issue of a fabulous Canadian magazine, Seventeen Seconds #7 includes my reflection on Susan Howe's essay on Chris Marker (with her really interesting reflections on Vertov, Tarkovsky, poetry and of course life in general).

"seventeen seconds: a journal of poetry and poetics comes out as the natural extension of
Still from Chris Marker's La Jetée
the eight issues of edited by rob mclennan and Stephen Brockwell. Highlighting the diversity of voice, style, practice and politic, seventeen seconds continues the resolve to provide a forum for dialogue on contemporary poetics, with a focus on Canadian writing. Over the past two decades, the amount of critical writing published in print literary journals on Canadian poetry, specifically, seems to have decreased dramatically, but slowly returned through a number of online journals. seventeen seconds simply wishes to help strengthen the dialogue and the ongoing conversation about writing through publishing new writing, and conversation about new writing. How else are we supposed to learn anything, unless we keep talking?"--
