Paul Dutton - Partial Additives (Book)


These one-become-two-word poems treat the letters of the alphabet as additives—that is, substances which, when added in small quantities to second substances, create third ones. In Dutton's minimalist workings the title "Bluebell" inspires the word "peal," to which a t is added to create "petal," this indicated in the body of the poem as "pe(t)al"; "Glue Factory" results in "ste(w)ed," "Reverberations" in "go(i)ng," plus 49 others. The plain typewriter text has been enhanced in stunning xerographic treatments by Britain's master visual poet Bob Cobbing.
