"If the encyclopedia collects general knowledge, the recyclopedia salvages and finds imaginative uses..." July 25 2014

If the encyclopedia collects general knowledge, the recyclopedia salvages and finds imaginative uses for knowledge. That’s what poetry does when it remakes and renews words, images, and ideas, transforming surplus cultural information into something unexpected.

- Harryette Mullen, “Recycle This Book,” in Recyclopedia, vii. (via femmefag)
