Such is the fundamental hope of Oulipo, and such is the mission entrusted to Eunoia's "univocalic" principle, in which each of the book's five chapters (comprising a paragraph per page, each never more than eighty words) is forced to address a specific vowel.
Eunoia has reduced the afflatus to a kind of automated algorithm whereby Bök's poems are products of specific procedural rules and are not pressed out by any emotional or intellectual predicament.
Stunning in its implications and masterful in its execution, Eunoia is poised to be one of the most unusual and important books of the year.

 Brian Kim Stefans: Eunoia
In the "i" chapter, he is the smug and sarcastic mad scientist while in the "a" chapter, absent the "i" but having access to a welter of nouns, he adopts an omniscient, allusive approach, cleverly dismissing both Kant (for his transcendental ego) and Marx (for his materialist dialectics) in the process.
Indeed, Bök was very careful to make "Eunoia" a work of literary quality in a conventional sense; he denies himself a plethora of avant-garde tactics such as parataxis, fragmentation, and visual poetics, that would have made his pursuit easier.
But it is "Eunoia," with its readability and extreme method, that poses the largest questions for poetry, both of the "avant-garde" and more lyrical variety.

Designed to make a mockery of those who insist that a book must be intelligible, poetic, or at the very least worth the pulp it's printed on, Eunoia is a paean to the kind of people who attend Warhol's "Empire", and claim to be deeply moved by it.

Eunoia, a word meaning "beautiful thinking," is a poem of five chapters constructed using only one vowel per chapter.
He would not rewrite Eunoia to add the five words he didn't manage to fit in: parallax, belvedere, gingivitis, monochord, and tumulus.
Bök said he anticipated the criticism and wrote the first paragraph of the "i" chapter to address those critics who consider Eunoia as a stunt rather than a study of language and its limitations.

Eunoia is fundamentally a well-executed parlour game which does not live up to the ballyhoo that has surrounded it.
What Bok does in Eunoia is similar, except that his “colours” are the sounds of vowels rather than red and orange pigments, and they play in the reader’s ear instead of in the viewer’s eye.
Because the content and the lyricism of Eunoia are subservient to the greater thesis of the work doesn’t remove it from the “function” of purely lyrical poems.

When I first read a very positive review of Christian Bök's Eunoia (Coach House Press, 2001) a couple of months ago, I was interested enough to add it to my various online bookstore wishlists right away, although I was somewhat skeptical about the apparent gimmickry of its concept.
The book comprises five main chapters, each one of which is a prose poem employing only words with one of the five vowels: univocal lipograms.
“Eunoia” is also the shortest word in the English language to use all five vowels.

 eye - Bök beats the devil of language - 12.06.01
Seven years in the making, Eunoia (which means beautiful thinking) is a marvel of imagination, a work that no doubt required resourcefulness and astounding patience.
Eunoia may not teach you anything about the human condition -- more than enough books have been written to that end -- but Bök's heroics make other authors seem like underachievers.
