Compiled by three noted poets, this is an eclectic, stimulating, and informed selection of poets' remarks on poetry spanning eras, ethnicities, and aesthetics. The 102 selections from nearly as many poets reach back to the Greeks and Romans, then draw on Chaucer, Shakespeare, Sidney, and Milton, on to Shelley, Keats, Coleridge, and Poe, then Hopkins, Yeats, Eliot, Rilke, and Pound, concluding with many of our contemporaries, including Hall, Clifton, Mackey, Kunitz, and Rukeyser. The book is divided into three sections. "Musing" concerns issues of inspiration, "Making," issues of craft, from diction to meter to persona and voice, and "Mapping," the role of poetry and the poet. Headnotes at the beginning of each selection provide background information about the poet and commentary on the significance of the selection. There is also a useful appendix with a listing of essays arranged according to more specific topics. As the poets write in their introduction: "This book was intended to deepen readers' understanding of age-old poetic ideas while at the same time pointing out new directions for thinking about poetry, juxtaposing the familiar and the strange, reconfiguring old boundaries, and shaking up stereotypes."

"Toward. Some. Air. is an unprecedented collection of contemporary poetics from Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom. Here, poet and scholar Amy De'Ath and former Parliamentary Poet Laureate Fred Wah collect a wide range of conversations, statements, essays, profiles, and poems and place these often radical and interdisciplinary approaches in proximal relation to each other. The result is an open invitation to consider the contours and meanings of Anglophone poetic practice as a mode of interpreting the world, its potential for transforming subjectivity, or something else entirely. With over forty renowned contributors it is an invaluable resource for students, teachers, and writers."--

This book reproduces the texts of four lectures, followed by discussions, and two interviews with Lise Gauvin published in Introduction à une poétique du divers (1996); and also four further interviews from L'Imaginaire des langues (Lise Gauvin, 2010). It covers a wide range of topics but key recurring themes are creolization, language and langage, culture and identity, 'monolingualism', the 'Chaos-world' and the role of the writer. Migration and the various different kinds of migrants are also discussed, as is the difference between 'atavistic' and 'composite' communities, the art of translation, identity as a 'rhizome' rather than a single root, the Chaos-World and chaos theory, 'trace thought' as opposed to 'systematic thought', the relation between 'place' and the Whole-World, exoticism, utopias, a new definition of beauty as the realized quantity of differences, the status of literary genres and the possibility that literature as a whole will disappear. Four of the interviews (Chapters 6, 7, 8 and 9) relate to particular works that Glissant has published: Tout-monde, Le monde incrée, La Cohée du Lamentin, Une nouvelle région du monde. Many of these themes have been explored in his previous works, but here, because in all the chapters we see Glissant interacting with the questions and views of other people, they are presented in a particularly accessible form.

Skaldic Poetry of the Scandinavian Middle Ages

This is the first edition of the skaldic corpus from first principles since Finnur Jónsson's Den Norsk-Islandske Skjaldedigtning (1912-15).

The Norse-Icelandic Skaldic Poetry of the Scandinavian Middle Ages project aims to produce a new edition of the known corpus of skaldic verse, including runic inscriptions in metrical form. In practice this means editing all poetry supposed to be from earliest times until c. 1400, which does not belong to the collection in the Codex Regius of the Elder Edda and related collections. This is the first edition of the skaldic corpus from first principles since Finnur Jónsson's Den Norsk-Islandske Skjaldedigtning (1912-15). It will be published in both book and electronic form as a critical edition with an English translation, editorial apparatus and notes. It will, however, in all cases re-examine the manuscript evidence for the poetic texts and their contexts. The edition will be produced in eight volumes, each one based on distinct source categories arranged in assumed chronological order, so that the manuscript contexts in which the poetry has been preserved will be kept in view. This basis of selection, plus the inclusion of an English translation and notes, should prove useful to readers outside skaldic studies, such as historians, archaeologists and scholars of other medieval literatures, who have previously found skaldic verse rather inaccessible. The volume of runic poetry will also contain images of the objects on which the inscriptions were carved. There will be a ninth volume comprising various indices and a complete bibliography of works relevant to skaldic poetry.

Cultural Writing. Literary Criticism. Poetics. "The wild is always unprecedented, but never inconsistent. This is the knowledge that makesAmerican scholarship American. Norman Finkelstein offers unprecedented insights here whose factsconsist of one Soul purpose: Friendship. Here the imagination of poetry is Friendship on the line. Anddriving that line are energies of the inevitable (if we are to live, Friendship is inevitable): motions outward;an outstretched hand; a goddamn big car bought and paid for lovingly. These energies speak simply, anddoing so, they accomplish new simplicities which Finkelstein boldly proposes as the most radical virtuesof poetic art.

Reading Old Friends includes essays, reviews, and poems on poetics. Matthias, who has spent much time in England, concentrates on British poetry ranging from late modernist figures such as David Jones and Hugh MacDiarmid to contemporaries such as Geoffrey Hill, Seamus Heaney, Michael Hamburger, and John Fuller. He also seeks to establish, or re-establish, meaningful trans-Atlantic connections between Wendell Berry and Jeremy Hooker, for example, or between Robert Duncan and David Jones. Other, more generally acknowledged figures, are also discussed, including Wordsworth, Pope, Crabbe, Constable, Turner, Britten, Tippet, Lowell, Auden, and Berryman. The book also contains three poems on poetics that engage many of the theoretical issues left implicit in most of the essays.

Poetry And Poetics Are Integrally Related. The Former Is An Art Based On Emotions, Whereas The Latter Is A Science Evaluating Poetry. So Long Their Common Mode Of Treatment Has Been To Excite In The Mind The Emotions Appropriate To The Subject-Matter. But Science And Art Are Not Identical. The Former Uses The Discursive Mode; And The Latter The Presentational Mode. While Science Is Truth, The Art Is Adjectively True , I.E. It Does Not Conflict With The Truth.The Book Critique Of Poetics Is An Extremely Bold And Far Reaching Attempt At A Comprehensive Theory Of Poetry. It Starts With A Sound-Sense Continuum And Ends With Quantum Poetics. The Path Of Evolution Is Marked By The Poetic Process, The Flow Of Rasa, The Flight Of Pegasus, The Dance Of Resonons, The Doctrine Of Suggestion, Rx For Rhetoric, The Logic Of Signs And Symbols, The Poetic Imagery, The Miracle Of Communication, The Concept Of Criticism, Style And Stylistics, The Law Of Inspiration And Catharsis, The Limits Of Art, The Philosophy Of Beauty, East And West In Poetics, And The Theory Of Literature. And This Has Been Treated In A Global Perspective, Which Harmonizes Both East And West In Poetics. A Balance Has Also Been Struck Between The Two Approaches To The Study Of Literature Extrinsic And Intrinsic. The Former Is Characterized By Psychology-Society And Other Arts Whereas The Latter By Style And Stylistics, Image And Metaphor, Rhetoric And Suggestion, Beauty And The Like. A New Theory Of Literature Has Been Derived From These. This Is Born In A Continuum Of Sound And Sense, Of Space And Time. It Provides An Organ Of Evaluating The Past, Present And Future Works Of Literature. In This Context Quantum Poetics Marks The End Of The Evolutionary Process.

In this refreshingly vivid new translation by A S G Thurston, Aristotle can be seen to be summarising the main principles of aesthetic appreciation in ancient Greece which established the fundamental theory and practice in western art for the following 2,400 years.No one has ever made such a systematic study and full-scale investigation encompassing the entire range of human knowledge as he did. So the Poetics is consequently the first and most important study of this kind in the history of western civilisation. All concepts on aesthetics, which we know today, are rooted in this book. Today however, Aristotle must be understood on several levels in a complex fashion, as Thurston believes he originally intended it to be. So with the use of today's English words and phrases Thurston presents the Poetics in an accessible way for students of theatre, and for anyone interested in reading Aristotle. Thurston says: I translated and restructured the text in a more reader friendly way - and which I think can also be used to compliment lectures in its parts. Adrian S.G. Thurston, Esquire.

This book has inspired many scholars to study the numerous works on Alankara, to produce papers dealing with several aspects of Alankarasastra and to publish several important texts. The author has made substantial additions and changes in this edition and has included valuable new material.The book is divided into two parts. The first part contains an account of the important works on Alankarasastra, a brief analysis of their contents and the chronology of writers on Alankarasastra and other kindred matters. The second part comprises a review of subjects that fall under the purview of Alankarasastra. The author has attempted to show how from very small beginnings various theories of Poetics and Literary Criticism were evolved, to dilate upon the different aspects of an elaborate theory of Poetics and trace the history of literary theories in India.
