what it means to be avant-garde (1993) Private stock.

One thing it means is that you get to congratulate yourself on being avant-garde, prove how smart you are. Seriously, though, I've always liked Antin's take-down of Bloom, the Romantic subjectivity crisis being reduced to the status of a copyright dispute. The last piece, "the structuralist," is brilliant. I've read Antin over and over again. Some of the pieces withstand repeated readings more easily than others.
