‘A Suitable Culture’

‘Lee Harwood, the noted Anglo-American poet, has begun to publish compositions written in a language of his own invention. Linguists who have examined these ‘neologisms’ substantiate Harwood’s claim that his language is not, in essence, derived from any other language, oral or written. Harwood is attempting to establish a utopian community on the outskirts of Tuscon, Arizona, where his language can be spoken and ‘a suitable culture developed around it.’ Already three hundred subscribers from twelve states have committed themselves to the project.’
