Poetics/Ethics MSA 14 Las Vegas

Robert Volpicelli/ Penn State University

In his 1913 essay, "The Serious Artist," Ezra Pound suggests that writing "good" poetry is as much a matter of aesthetics as it is ethics. The last few years have seen an increased amount of scholarship pertaining to the ethics of modernism. The majority of these critical inquiries, however, have centered on fiction in general and novels in particular. What if we took Pound's claim seriously as a way of shifting the attention of this conversation away from plot and toward poetics? What would an ethical poetry look like? How might poetic form be implicated in a philosophical considerations of ethics? This panel is accepting abstract submissions that entertain these questions and any others that engage the relationship between poetics and ethics.
