Poetic Thinking (ACLA 2017)

Contemporary poets like J. H. Prynne, Denise Riley, and John Wilkinson have explored the nature and scope of an alternative mode of ‘thinking’ in poetry. Aided by late modernist reformulations of poetic difficulty, these poets continue the Romantic legacy by reconfiguring poetry as essentially theoretical. For the Cambridge school, ‘poetic thinking’ does not involve a simple rehashing of philosophical ideas in poetic diction, but as Simon Jarvis points out, these poems instead of accommodating philosophy within their formal structures are in themselves philosophic. Such a reconsideration of the poem as a cognitive product affords a metaphysical truth that is at once noble and transcendent.

Friday, September 30, 2016

This roundtable session is seeking papers that consider how first person pronouns and declarative clauses are used in the American lyric and how their use potentially highlights the ways in which place and nationality work to construct notions of the self in relation to the collective body—work to construct a political economy of empathetic identification.
