Title of the paper:  How many do we speak in a week?

Author: Kenneth Goldsmith (1961-) Foto

Text: Soliloquy


Abstract:  In this paper I begin with the author’s biography. He is also one of the most important members of the Poetry Foundation. A blog abut him is included in this paper, too.  Soliloquy is a collage of words, thoughts and ideas that appear together. A soliloquy is a monologue, but in this case it is also a dialogue. I have also included a summary about the text and the topics that are in Soliloquy.   The characters are not well defined. The story is set in New York in 1996.  This is a post-modern and homosexual story, so I include a text about queer theory(1) , (2) , (3) in order to analyse this aspect of the text. To conclude, I add a personal opinion about the story itself.  There are also a critic about Goldsmith and I also include some opinions about his poetry. I have found an interesting link about other works of Kenneth and Jonathan Zorn in the UbuWeb.
