The first chapter in region of unlikelness by Thomas Gardner he builds a really good case for considering Bishop as a precursor to Graham. The way that she builds out the "frame of reference", shows it to you, and then says, "yes, very well, but it simply will not do!" is discussed within an overall frame of the "sceptic". It also reminds me of a book I read recently on "the resitance of poetry" where the author discusses how we read poetry to hear the poet thinking, the flow of thought and feeling. After all those years of reading critical theory, here we are again, at the edge of reason.
