The final section, devoted to alterations, versions and inversions, examines aspects of Dada poetry that still fascinate us today. James not only inserts German words into his poems in the English language, but also incorporates modified fragments of some poems by Tzara and Arp into his 1973 collection Letters from Sarah, whose title is also a veiled tribute to Tzara.
