The work of Joshua Clover blends the worlds of poetry and economic crisis.
Poet, communist, cultural critic, translator, editor, and professor of literature and critical theory at the University of California Davis, Clover has published three acclaimed volumes of poetry: Madonna anno domini, The Totality for Kids and his most recent, Red Epic, published by Commune Editions, a small publisher founded by Clover and fellow poets Jasper Bernes and Juliana Spahr. He has also published two books of cultural theory: The Matrix (a BFI study of the film), and 1989: Bob Dylan Didn’t Have This to Sing About, “a tour de force of lyrical theory [which] boldly reimagines how we understand both pop music and its social context in a vibrant exploration of a year famously described as ‘the end of history.’”
Born in 1962 in Berkeley, California, and a continuing Bay Area resident, Clover’s forthcoming book Riot Strike Riot: The New Era of Uprisings, to-be published by Verso, explores the historical development of riots from a tactic for worker’s wage demands to post-1968 occupations challenging corporate and government malignance.
Clover will give a talk on riots as historical phenomena, on Saturday October 3 at the I. FELL building, located at 415 W 4th Street, at 5pm, followed by a reading from Red Epic as a part of the Ledge Mule Press Poetry Project.
