Weinstein, Melissa (2001) Some geographies. Masters thesis, Concordia University.
some geographies is a book of poetry divided into three sections: "Fifteen False Propositions Against Spicer"; "A Geography"; and "Equation". While each of the sections works from a different premise--grappling with precursors, locating the page and the imagination, and trying to make sense of language that appears to be nonsensical--the three parts work together in order to form a whole that is primarily obsessed with place. This obsession ranges from the concrete fictional and fictionalized locations produced by the act of writing, to the and disrupt one another. The book itself serves as an inquiry into these different ways of looking at place and ultimately seeks to pose, rather than to answer, questions.
