Reactions to Holes

“Holes may be defined as hollow places in solid ground or space-time, as openings that lead into and through something. Holes may be the hollow spaces left by absences, of people, creatures, thought, and therefore spaces that ask to be filled…or not. Began in 2006, Graham Allen’s epoem ‘Holes’, is a daily ten-syllable thought clip, that uses language to picture his reflections on being. ‘Holes’ is a prodigious tunnelling through of philosophy, politics and domesticity, and which affirms that nothing in life is quotidian. The changes in mood, (bemusement, anger, accusation, amusement, sadness and even bleakness), which may hold for a series of lines, are particularly interesting, in that they carry with them a sense of immediacy, a truthfulness from the commentary. This is a hugely important and intelligent work, by a man fully engaged with living and being present in the world.”

“A line a day produced in an untiring formal adventure cuts a way through an almost exhausted field.”

“There is a real joy to discovering Graham Allen’s epoem Holes and seeing the dedication to craft within it. It’s very tempting to go all the way back to December 23rd, 2006, and read from the very beginning—like a marathon binge-viewing of several years’ worth of a beloved series—but really, any point is a good jumping-in point. Along with the textures and patterns of nature found within the many photographs, there are the personal, political, philosophical, and otherwise insightful revelations of a mind that never fails to surprise. I’ve been making a game out of finding my favourite lines in a given section of entries, then figuring out why it is I like them so much. That’s the definition of engaging reading, wouldn’t you say?”

“The ongoing digital life-poem Holes [is] the most successful fusion of the lyrical with the cyber-spatial I am aware of. In fact, I’m pretty sure that in terms of it’s probable future influence over the formal development of poetry (and what other influence is there?), Holes is the most important poem being written in Ireland in the present time.”
                  — Dave Lordan (writer and creative writing teacher)

“For me, the indeterminacy of the piece across all its intersecting modes and platforms is the main thing. Added to by the fact that it depends on emergent technology, and is an aesthethic hybrid as well. The sense of encountering something new which has both familar and unfamiliar elements, and familiar elements unfamiliarly arranged, and that there is an intense and wide-ranging intelligence showering us with an excess of meaning throughout, makes the piece immensely generative, and so pleasing, as an aesthetic experience. For example, it reads at points like a set of runes/omens/prophecies/proverbs and at other points like a confession of personal failings, anxieties etc the relationship and interchange and tension between such registers as the piece unfolds, drawing into and then striking out of itself, so to speak, dynamises.”
