Projective Verse at 70: Theoretical and Poetic Influences

Saturday, August 24, 2019 - 4:07pm
The Charles Olson Society
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 6, 2019

The Charles Olson Society will sponsor a panel at the annual Louisville Conference on Literature and Culture since 1900, to be held at the University of Louisville from February 20-22. 2020 marks the 70th anniversary of this important essay, and the panel will therefore examine the essay’s theoretical and poetic legacies. We are interested in abstracts proposing innovative approaches to reading Olson’s essay and the conversations that it started. How have the theoretical or cultural contexts surrounding projective verse created a robust understanding of poetic practice in the post-1945 era? How have the legacies of projective poetry engaged with and inflected theoretical models?

Film After Joyce (essay collection)

The Soviet director Sergei Eisenstein initiated what has become a very long and multifaceted conversation about James Joyce in relation to film.  He was the first director to contemplate an adaptation of Ulysses, for instance, and the only one to discuss such a project with the author himself. Although that adaptation project never came to fruition, Eisenstein was the first film theorist who used Ulysses and Finnegans Wake as reference points to describe how film worked and how it might continue to evolve in the future. He was also the first filmmaker to apply these concepts in practice.

117th Annual Conference - San Diego, California
Thursday, November 14 - Sunday, November 17, 2019

This session will focus on Samuel Beckett, the preeminent advocate for the clown. In Beckett’s novels, the protagonists and the narrator are often clowns. Waiting For Godot was written for actors who donned the attire of tramp-clowns. Beckett’s inspiration often sprang from silent film— he emulated Charles Chaplin and Buster Keaton.
