"The Poetry of Photography"
Special Session
MLA 2017 Philadelphia

A growing body of scholarship has demonstrated how the history of photography frequently intersects with the development of poetic form. Poets ranging from Lewis Carroll to Natasha Trethewey have focused on the medium. Given the substantial number of poems that engage photography, our panel will explore new directions for thinking about the impact of this technology on literary history and vice versa. Topics may include nineteenth-century poetry, historical poetics, visual culture, cinema, verse forms, theories of photography, translation, ekphrasis, the photobook, or digital humanities.

FPC 12 THE READERLY

Recently we have talked a great deal of unreadability, it seemed time to revisit the optimistic side of the question…

- Here we approach, I tell my teacher, a considerable objection that I want to put to you…Obscurity!

- It is, indeed, equally dangerous, he answers me, whether obscurity derives from the deficiencies of the reader, or those of the poet… but to elude the task altogether would be cheating.

--Stéphane Mallarmé, "An Interview with Jules Huret," 1891
