Minor Literatures/Long Trips

I’m still meant to be doing a literature review at the moment – this is coming along – in that I know what I want to say, I’m just struggling to get that onto the page.

More promising in terms of my research is that some of the reading I’ve been doing is really clicking into place. Today, for example, I’ve been reading about theories of ‘minor literature’ by Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari. The idea of an oppositional literature within the major/great language really appeals – especially in terms of Lewis’ use of Welsh form in English language poetry.

Tomorrow, I’m interviewing Lewis at her home in Cardiff. This is really exciting – although I obviously have 1000 things I’d like to ask but will probably forget at the moment…
