It can now be found this way, from Silliman’s blog:
Sameness vs. Otherness in American poetry
Robert Archambeau has also been reading Pleiades, it seems, and folds the same paragraph I mentioned [below: Amy Casey - Mark Halliday - Joshua Clover - Pleiad... ] into a little essay on the perennial us-ness and them-ness, concluding thusly:
“So sure, okay, poetry is divided into camps. And poetry changes over time. But in all our emphasis on different teams, and micro-evolutions of styles, maybe we should take a break and check out how samenesses exist, and continuities endure. And maybe I should head outside and knock back a cold one. All formtreib and no stofftrieb makes Archambeau a dull guy. And thirsty, too.”
And, if you didn’t find it already, over onthe pshares blog they’re (we’re) also chitting and chatting:
This time, with (real) feeling
For me, personally, I don’t have much to add to the conversation. All I know about teams and camps is that I was always one of the last ones chosen, back in school. Mostly because I lose interest way too quickly in things like teams and camps and school.
