Using techniques rooted in William Burroughs dada-inspired cut-up method, Incitements takes the reader under the surface of three works of prosePeter Sangers literary essay White Salt Mountain, Merritt Gibsons guidebook Summer Nature Notes and Hans Falladas novel Every Man Dies Aloneexploring the poetic landscapes of their would-be unconscious. In the relentless imagistic flux, metaphoric excess and quantum poetics that results, Sean Howard uncovers new relationships and resonances in the prose and remixes them as poetry. As Merritt Gibson cautioned, when you turn over a rock "the animals that live on the undersurface are different from those that live on the uppersurface"; so too when we turn languages stone.
