This chapter examines the experimental poetry of Caroline Bergvall, Elizabeth James, Frances Presley and Redell Olsen. It begins by considering the importance of visual presentation and sound performance in the work of Bergvall, particularly Éclat (1996) and Goan Atom (2001). It then offers a reading of Neither the One nor the Other, a collaboration between James and Presley, and its emphasis on performance, performativity, blurred identities, and virtuality. It also explores how Neither the One nor the Other evokes and circulates a range of meanings around and within history, language, religion and environment. Finally, it analyses Olsen’s Secure Portable Space (2004) and its exploration of textual and virtual spaces.

Keywords:   experimental poetry, Caroline Bergvall, Elizabeth James, Frances Presley, Redell Olsen, Éclat, Goan Atom, Neither the One nor the Other, Secure Portable Space, virtual spaces
