From the Files of the Immanent Foundation by Norman Finkelstein


From the Files of the Immanent Foundation is a beautiful work of hesitant wonder, coaxing stark narration, precept, adage and a strange, winsome yet doleful music out of bureaucratic and documentarian argot and protocol.  Its long run of quirks and particulars makes it also a work of rash but strict invention, both an inquiry into invention and its anthem or hymn, its exemplum. Immanence’s openly secret accord with emanation seems to be at issue or at least at work.  I read it wishing it would never end. —Nathaniel Mackey

The Foundation is a network of spies and secrets,
an infinite arcanum of hierophants and fools,
residing in a mansion of closets and trapdoors,
stairways and hallways, nested studies surrounding
a library where the scholars sleepwalk forever
and the catalogers despair…
Welcome to the Immanent Foundation…
