Essay Collection: Representations of Beauty and Violence

updated: 
Wednesday, June 3, 2009 - 11:40am
Maryna Romanets / University of Northern British Columbia

We are seeking essays that theorize the relationship between and inter-implication of beauty and violence in literature, film and art. While inquiring into the discursive constructions and multi-layered cultural re-enactments of the "violence mythos" (Whitmer), we are interested in the mechanisms of conversion whereby the seductive powers of aestheticized violence allow a reader/viewer to move past a "front-line vocabulary of cruelty" (Ackley) and become captivated by the beauty of such representations. How, in other words, do aesthetics intersect with violence?

Questions we would like the contributors to consider include, but are not limited to, the following:

Accepting submissions for "H.D. and the Image" feature (creative and critical work)

Kristina Marie Darling

Submissions are currently being accepted for a feature, "H.D. and the Image," which is tentatively scheduled for publication in Jacket. The feature will focus on the relevance of Imagist technique to contemporary poetry, particularly the ways that poets today continue to draw from the Imagist tradition that Hilda Doolittle represented. Doolittle remains a unique figure in 20th century women's poetry, particularly because she continually revised her own definition of Imagist technique in transitioning from early works like Sea Garden to later book such as Helen in Egypt.
