“Torque #2: The Act of Reading” print edition

“Not only is more writing, and more reading of that writing, being done now, and by more people than at any other time in history, there seem to be more and more different kinds of thing that reading can be, and more and more different kinds of entity, organic and technological, that are engaged in acts of reading. Reading inquisitively over each others’ shoulders, the poems, meditations, analyses and experiments in this volume respond with audacity and adventure to the challenge of characterising what reading, this most familiar yet renewedly strange occupation, has been and may yet become.”
—Steven Connor, Professor of English, Cambridge University
