Hanna Weiner

Joyelle has been on a real Hannah Weiner bender, so a lot of our conversations over the past few weeks have been about Weiner and performance, insanity etc.

Probably the best critical introduction to her work is likely this interview on Charles Bernstein's "Linebreak."

Particularly interesting is Charles's repeated invitation to Weiner to view her work as part of a literary and political lineage, which Weiner resists through various spiritualist claims (astral etc).
