An Object-Oriented Defense of Poetry

What's on my plate this week. I have to firm up the essay, which is pretty much 100% done, but lacking in precise pagination in the citations. Astonishingly I just received a very kind offer of research assistance which is going to save my bacon.

I'm quite happy with the essay. I'm arguing that OOO enables us to articulate a robust theory of poetry that has ethical and political implications pertaining to nonviolence. And that poetry explores causality, rather than simply decorating the cupcake of the real.
