X Marks the Spot: Lyric Chiasmus and Chiastic Lyrics

For a moment in time, a generation ago, apostrophe became for some scholars the embodiment of the lyric gesture itself. In Jonathan Culler’s words, apostrophe signals “not a moment in a temporal sequence but a now of discourse, of writing,” typified by the poetic “O.” Long the neglected step-sibling of lyric apostrophe, chiasmus (“a crosswise placing” from the Greek letter chi) embodies the boustrophedonic turns of repetition and reversal, which also might be seen at the heart of the lyric. Where apostrophe involves a turning away to address an absent person, thing, or idea, chiasmus seems to turn inward—to sound, form, image.

“One must turn back to Shakespeare then, for Shakespeare was androgynous; and so were Keats and Sterne and Cowper and Lamb and Coleridge[…] Some collaboration has to take place in the mind between the woman and the man before the art of creation can be accomplished. Some marriage of opposites has to be consummated” (Woolf, A Room of One’s Own).
