Contents The still-unbuilt hacienda -- "What is composition ...?" after Duchamp -- The American action writers -- Scenes from late sixties composition -- Writing classroom as A & P parking lot -- Never mind the tagmemics, where's the Sex pistols? -- English composition as a happening II -- Bonus track : funeral ceremony for the anti-procès II.
Summary What happened to the bold, kicky promise of writing instruction in the 1960s? The current conservative trend in composition is analyzed allegorically by Geoffrey Sirc in this book-length homage to Charles Deemer's 1967 article, in which the theories and practices of Happenings artists (multi-disciplinary performance pioneers) were used to invigorate college writing.
