Kay Rosen


Kay Rosen plays with the construction of words and phrases, manipulating their format, and placement to create context that generates new meanings.  Rosen’s later work relies more on these attributes but “Oh, Eua,”, one of her earlier works is a short narrative whose context emerges simply from punctuation change.  That gesture creates significant differences made between the two texts, speaking to the complexity of language.

-how meaning (of language) changes based on slight factors, like variations of tone.

-how every thing can be two things at once.  Or is it every thing can be many things at once?
