Paul Harris

Professor: B.A., McGill University; M.A. University of California at Irvine; Ph.D., University of California at Irvine.

PH's preferred creed: the extended letter-centered text effect perfected. He, the well-versed geek, the respected exegete, esteems letter-centered texts, the genre where letters per se get stressed. He prefers perverse Escher verses, he references Tweedledee's speech, Beckett's empty Zen lessness. He eschews severe, well-set symmetry; he never renders texts level; he reverses terms, skews sense, bends the text's edges, then extends them.

When every semester ends, he'll yet be the ever-fresh precedent-setter. He's new percepts' germ; he's new precepts' stem. He lengthens sense, stretches the grey cells' nerves, deepens the psyche.
