Overview

Normal0falsefalsefalseEN-USX-NONEX-NONEMicrosoftInternetExplorer4 In collaboration with Publication Studio-Hudson,  A Fiery Flying Roule: to all the inhabitants of the earth; specially the rich ones reproduces a series of pamphlets distributed during the Oakland Commune (a.k.a. Occupy Oakland) from 2 November 2011, the day of the “general strike” that shut down the Port of Oakland, to May Day 2012. These 25 front-line transmissions are chronicle-collages of poetry, prose, photographs, and diagrams that reflect and respond to actions and events as they transpired in those heated 6 months. Their name recycles the title of a pair of antinomian pamphlets circulated by the London Ranter Abiezer Coppe in 1649; the tenor of Coppe’s prophetic do-it-yourself political barnstorming is continuously operative in these latter-day missives, particularly in the irregular orthography of the proper noun by which he called his pamphlets. This color-printed archive edition of the Roules includes a 60-pp. afterword that situates the project in its historical contexts.
