 Successful formal experiments, especially those relying on Oulipian restraints and combinatorics, might demand a certain degree of skill and patience, but so what?   They remain “beyond aesthetic value,” as Raymond Queneau said – a mere demonstration of intellectual gymnastics.  Rick Henry’s Chant , an Oulipian Romance, is completely different in this respect.  He demonstrates that such experiments need not be completely sterile, that there can be beauty and even love even in constraint.
