In the Garden of Recounting “In the Garden of Recounting” is a vintage feature that will require a little more attention than most to unpack, but is definitely worth the couple extra minutes you’ll spend uncovering the words hidden in the dense foliage of this textual garden. Robert Kendall’s truly unique work of “cybertext” was first published by Drunken Boat when it appeared in DB 6, Spring 2004.

“…his angry face hovers just below my horizon
the beatings retold in the faint language of scars
just a name people curse now…”

Robert Kendall, a Canadian born and raised, is one of the pioneers of interactive multimedia poetry. His poems have been featured and published in numerous exhibits and anthologies across the world. He currently resides in Boston and sits on the Board of Directors of the Electronic Literature Organization. You can find out more about him at robertkendall.com.
