1) From Sean Bishop's RES--ECTIONS (from Darwin's 1859 The Origin of Species). Bishop explains, "I chose The Origin of Species mostly by accident....It was only after I'd begun erasing that I realized what I was doing: The process of natural selection is itself a form of erasure, after all," at iO: A Journal of New American Poetry, here, as part of a long interview about his chapbook-length erasure project. With more pictures, of course.
2). Ian Monroe's The _____ of _____ By Means of Natural _____ or the _____ of Favoured _____ In The Struggle For Life (2011, a free downloadable e-book, here). Monroe explains, "For the first time, Darwin's dangerous ideas have been published, with every word which doesn't occur in the King James version of the Holy Bible safely redacted."
