In Representing Absence (winner of the 2004 Gertrude Stein Award) Deborah Meadows draws on a practice of poetry composition as palimpsest: writing on top, or through, other writing, she evokes writers such as Baudelaire, Melville in the excerpts from "The Theory of Subjectivity in MobyDick," Dante, and video artist, Bill Viola. Deborah Meadows teaches at California Polytechnic State University, Pomona, and has been part of recent writers' and scholars' exchanges with Havana.
