The Xenotext : Book 1


"Many artists seek to attain immortality through their art, but few would expect their work to outlast the human race and live on for billions of years. As Canadian poet Christian Bok has realized, it all comes down to the durability of your materials." "The Guardian"Internationally best-selling poet Christian Bok has spent more than ten years writing what promises to be the first example of "living poetry." After successfully demonstrating his concept in a colony of "E. coli," Bok is on the verge of enciphering a beautiful, anomalous poem into the genome of an unkillable bacterium ("Deinococcus radiodurans"), which can, in turn, "read" his text, responding to it by manufacturing a viable, benign protein, whose sequence of amino acids enciphers yet another poem. The engineered organism might conceivably serve as a post-apocalyptic archive, capable of outlasting our civilization.Book I of "The Xenotext "constitutes a kind of "demonic grimoire," providing a scientific framework for the project with a series of poems, texts, and illustrations. A Virgilian welcome to the Inferno, Book I is the "orphic" volume in a diptych, addressing the pastoral heritage of poets, who have sought to supplant nature in both beauty and terror. The book sets the conceptual groundwork for the second volume, which will document the experiment itself. "The Xenotext "is experimental poetry in the truest sense of the term.Christian Bok is the author of "Crystallography "(1994) and "Eunoia "(2001), which won the Griffin Poetry Prize. He teaches at the University of Calgary in Alberta, Canada."

Did you know . . . Cora Frear was a real pioneer girl, growing up on the prairie at the end of the nineteenth century. Her true story is as exciting as any novel. And it is only the first adventure in the Brave Kids series. Coming next: the story of Robert Henry Hendershot, Civil War drummer boy. In Falling Upward (and in many of his other The Xenotext : Book 1 ebook pdf teachings), Richard Rohr talks at length about ego (or the False Self) and how it gets in the way of spiritual maturity, especially if its preoccupations continue into the second half of life. But if there's a False Self, is there also a True Self? What is it? How is it found? Why does it matter? And what does it have to do with the spiritual journey? In his new book, the author likens True Self to a diamond, buried deep within us, formed under the intense pressure of our lives and needing to be searched for, uncovered, and separated from all the debris of ego that surrounds it. In a sense True Self must, like Jesus, be resurrected, and that process involves not resuscitation but transformation.
