Feminism, socialism, modernity. UK and New Zealand.

The lyric conceptualist has moved beyond the indgestible and the unreadable; in fact, beyond all gestures that have made pleasure the enemy of reading.

The lyric conceptualist remains true to her politics of inclusion, appreciating the thinkership of conceptual poetry, the revelations and mass assemblages that concretize the ephemeral textuality of daily life. Still, she stubbornly continues to bask in the reverie of solitude.

Lyric conceptualism indulges in the excess of language while appreciating the clean lines of the minimal.

Lyric conceptualism does not confuse clarity with simplicity.
