The epic unwriting of Empire: a case study. Khlebnikov -nash edinstvennyi poet-epik XX veka

Abstract

I was discussing with a friend the problems I was having in introducing my topic or theme. The friend in question is one of the artists who has been working on the film which I will show later. He had read through my text, which was, I thought, mainly finished, and had written down a number of key-words and phrases in order to make clear for himself the thread of the argument - or, more appropriately -“narrative”. I found his list very helpful and decided it would make a better introduction than any I had thus far arrived at, so here it is.
