(p.120) Conclusion
Experience and Experimental Writing

Paul Grimstad

Oxford University Press

This final chapter presents some concluding thoughts. This book has examined the prose and poetry of four different writers who have linked experience and experiment. In their writing a move from experience understood as a squaring of inner with outer matters to experience understood as a search for the conditions by which a work becomes shareable can be found. This process is called “experimental writing”. The rest of this final chapter outlines how that process is differently acknowledged in four provisional universals. The works analysed in this book are about discovering ways of going on within a common linguistic inheritance.

Keywords:   prose, poetry, experience, experimental writing, provisional universals, linguistic inheritance
