POETS & POETRY PANEL
48th Annual SAES (SociÃ©tÃ© des Anglicistes de l'Enseignement SupÃ©rieur)
OrlÃ©ans, France : 16th, 17th and 18th May 2008
The question of recycling in poetry allows us to confront the formal and
the thematic. To our connection with the natural world we must add our
understanding of the metrical patterns of poetry. Repetition is central
to the definition of poetry, yet we are taught that repetition is â€˜badâ€™.
Many poetic terms (verse, strophe) echo the cyclical nature of formal
patterns and recurrence is the backbone of metre and rhyme. Recycling,
however, also allows for transformation. But is recycling synonymous with
Postmodernism may have tried to tear at the heart of these notions but
they have persisted, waiting resistant beneath the surface. Recycling and
resurgence require us to investigate the ecology of poetry as well as the
dynamics of poetic language, the (under)currents of fluid language
constructs. The aim of this yearâ€™s Poets & Poetry panel is to address
notions of recycling, resurgence and ecology. Possible topics include (but
are not limited to):
Poets recycling themselves
Pre- and post-postmodernism
