Kenneth Goldsmith uses a lot of found language in his poems, and this is a particularly ambitious project in which he recorded and transcribed everything - every single word, every utterance - that came out of his mouth during a week. What a journey. Just think about it. A lot of it is small talk. A lot of it is incoherent when transferred to the print page. It was ironically unnatural to be reading this, well, supposedly natural speech.
Which made me think whether there is such thing as natural speech. It also made me contemplate once again on how people speak in novels, drama, and movies.
How we think we speak. Speaking and writing like we do seems almost like another form of overindulgent consumerism in this context, and there is something clean about "recycling" already existing language. The original recording probably had both the author and his interlocutors taped, but he chose to transcribe only his own speech, which raises the question of how much of your speech can make sense without the other side s of the conversation.
I found that I could understand surprisingly a lot. The piece is called Soliloquy and not Monologue, the only difference between the two terms being the presence or absence of an audience.
Soliloque is a speech that one gives to oneself, from the Latin solus "alone" and loqui "to speak". Thank you, Kenneth Goldsmith. As one other reviewers noted, someone had to do this. Less likely, you know of him for his post-conceptualist stunt poetry, which is more about process than product. Every um, every hesitation, every stammer. As is true for many writers and poets, Kenneth does not posess the gift of gab.
His conversations which are like listening to someone talking on a cell phone -- you only get his side are dull, and full of verbal flatulence. This is an excellent book for any aspiring authors wishing to give their dialogue a realist, Altman-esque twist.
The whole thing. I used a Kindle to read the online version, which is definitely not meant to be read in a continuous manner.

Soliloquy, Act 6 [excerpt]
With influences ranging from John Cage and Andy Warhol to contemporary hip hop and internet artists, Goldsmith has pushed the limits of late twentieth century poetics to both reinvigorate and pioneer aspects of visual poetry, sound poetry, the list poem, and digital poetics. If it is true, as Brion Gysin once remarked, that innovations in writing lag 50 years behind those of visual art, Goldsmith has steadfastly worked to bring the form up to date with the accomplishments of conceptual and performance art. Goldsmith was born in Freeport, New York, to a family employed in the garment industry. Since then he has had a successful career as a visual artist and creator of textual objects, as well as being a DJ for the alternative radio station, WFMU It contains a series of 79 textual overlays the title is an allusion to e. The effect is one of a palimpsest, with new associations being created through the simultaneous reproduction of two discrete poems, but it also provides a sense of continuity between each page. The free-play of syntax across the white page is visually-pleasing concrete poetry, but also foregrounds that which often goes unnoticed: that punctuation signifies, but is viewed as having low connotative value.
Goldsmith worked for many years within the art world as a text-based artist and sculptor before becoming a writer. In his own words, "I guess what I write is poetry.
