Ros Prosser – Whose everyday is it, anyway? Eileen Myles documents the everyday

Ros presented her interpretation of the work of American poet and political provocateur, Eileen Myles to Fay Gale members and visitors at our lunchtime seminar on Friday 21st. Following the path of Benjamin’s flaneur, Myles inhabits the life of the lesbian flaneur as a queer commentator interested in language and imagery.  We hear tantalizing snippets of readings from several of her works (including her 1994 biography – Chelsea Girls) and see rolling instagram images of shadows and street corners, carefully crafted yet simultaneously careless. Ros cleverly uses the work of de Certeau (The Practice of Everyday Life) to demonstrate how Myles uses writing techniques, and to extend her analysis of Myles’ specific (anarchic) being-in-the-world. Through close observation of language, and vernacular language in particular, we are led through ‘An American Poem’ read by Myles, again demonstrating how Myles can inhabit multiple spaces (imagined and real) through biography, the personal and the political, and her use of rhythmic language.
