Typewriters

And art. And the mind. And the book.

We're taking a turn back from considering writing and the mind towards considering the writing interface.

Read chap 3 of Emerson, "Typewriter Concrete Poetry."

Let's look at these experiments in writing and publishing as formulation, as Heim discusses it.

Notes
In the book, both for the author and for the reader, the psyche can find a locus for symbols that offer occasions for the contemplation of clear, stable ideas and that nurture the love of ideas. Heim, 182.

Authorship and readership. In this contemplative state of reading, we create originality - which includes reading as the re-creation of the author's ideas by a reader. Reading in this light is not reception but re-creation. In private, reading become a private preserve of personal thought - and this makes us vulnerable to totalitarian attempts. It also scares totalitarian positions (Heim 189).
