New Age Writing

Lehman, ''The World Trade Center'' (1996) -- Jerz: American Lit II (EL 267)

While I was reading The World Trade Center by David Lehman I thought of something Dr. Jerz said last semester. He said that writers today don't need to put a lot of thought into each word they select because of computers. They can save it and edit later. It seemed as though Lehman had wrote this in one sitting, then I looked some things up on him and found out he wrote a poem a day for 160 days (I think) in a row. I think you could really tell when reading it. I enjoyed it though.
