CALL FOR RESEARCH PAPERS

MODERN POETRY AND BEYOND
GUEST EDITORS :
Dr Amzed Hossain, Head, Dept of English, ALIAH UNIVERSITY, KOLKATA.

Dr Sukriti Ghosal, Principal, MUC WOMEN’S college, Burdwan

The poetry world is full of fence-building and turf wars. The territory of poetry written since Pound and Eliot tends to be subsumed into categories: modern, postmodern, avant-garde, post-avant-garde, post-post-avant-garde etc. One may not be interested in this mish-mash. However, a common issue is that all poetry since Pound and Eliot is a refusal to acknowledge an overtly oedipal relationship with literary traditions , and a willingness to construct and invent not only new kinds of poetry but new ways of reading.

We feel that whatever poetry is being written since Pound and Eliot has been an interesting call for a revaluation of fundamentals in poetry. Nothing can be wholly radical since everything has already been done, and whenever whatever, has appeared to be militaristically radical and path-breaking, has ultimately been institutionalized.
Our proposed collection of essays( in one or two volumes) will focus on the continuum of poetic utterance and will hence be entitled MODERN POETRY AND BEYOND. Taking Eliot as the locus classicus, we propose to include essays on all major British and American poets of the 20th century and beyond, and also propose to include papers on postcolonial poetry in English.

Thanks.
