Abstract

A reading of David Melnick’s book PCOET (1975) through the lenses of Lee Edelman’s concept of “homographesis” and Gregory Ulmer’s writings on “Electracy”. This essay considers the ways in which PCOET retunes reading methodologies and suggests possibilities for articulations of queer experiment.
