The Start of Sentences

James Davies’ experiences of reading Robert Grenier’s Sentences in Bury’s Text Art Archive:

I don’t want to go into individual poems so much here as to explain the joy of reading Sentences as archived material, in the archive, and the processes of reading the poems in accordance with the way Sentences is catalogued. The copy of Sentences at Bury, “The Bury Sentences” as I now call it, is a like a “bootleg” record — just as cool as the original but with minor differences to interest the aficionado. I’ll explain why.

The Other Room website rebooted!

The Other Room website has been running the whole duration we’ve been running our nights and has started to bulge and bulge. So we decided to do a bit of a spring clean in order to make it easier to navigate. We’ve also tidied up all those inevitable missed links which Mick Weller celebrates HERE.

If you’re old or new to the site have a look around our massive archive of blog/news posts, video archive from most of our readings, video and print interviews, book reviews, reviews of our events, poster archive and photos. Don’t forget of course to check out our upcoming events and annual anthology.

James, Scott & Tom
