Still from You Shall Have No Other

Still from You Shall Have No Other

Dennis will be reading poems and speaking about his video poetry project based on his book You Shall Have No Other.

 You Shall Have No Other is a book of poems written as a novel, pared down to a play and presented as web-based movies that the viewer can download, change any way they want, and resend to the internet, along with rewriting the text PDF, and PODing it over night to themselves from Amazon as a real, printed book. The reader is the writer. Every book is unique. Every movie a new possibility. This is where poets are now. See the project online
