Endless Beginner: Adrienne Rich in the Twenty-First Century

updated: 
Friday, September 18, 2020 - 9:49am
Cynthia R. Wallace / Arizona Quarterly
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, December 1, 2020

Re-reading Adrienne Rich in the quickly shifting crises of the year 2020, one senses the renewed urgency of her ethico-political project as a citizen poet seeking to “believe the fever can break, the sick body politic come back to life” (A Human Eye 98). Throughout her poetic career Rich challenged the perceived disconnect between poetry and material social good, and while her early and mid-career poems may be the most frequently anthologized, the poetry and prose she published in the second half of her six-decade project continues an extraordinary trajectory of expanding solidarities and poetic technique.

In the mid-twentieth century, Kenneth Burke's massive body of work on the "new rhetoric" was widely considered to be a watershed for the rhetorical tradition and its interlocutors. Routing classical and new rhetorical concepts through contemporary understandings of the unconscious, ideology, media, discourse, literature, politics, ecology, and economics, Burke rendered "mere rhetoric" relevant to the concerns of modernity.  In 2020, his trailblazing approaches to terms such as identification, orientation, attitude, hierarchyinterpretation, occupation, action, trope, etc.

The concept of evil received much attention throughout the 20th century. Despite the industrial scale atrocities committed in Nazi Germany, Stalinist Russia, and Maoist China, alongside the genocides in Cambodia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, and Rwanda, as well as the explosion of serial killers like Ted Bundy, Jeffrey Dahmer, and Andrei Chikatilo in the latter part of the 20th century, the first two decades of the 21st century have been largely unconcerned with rigorous discussion of such evil.

McFarland Publishers
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, December 1, 2020

Popular culture scholars often refer to a 40-year cycle of nostalgia, and so it is not surprising that there has been a recent wave of movies and television shows set in the 1980s.  The Netflix series Stranger Things, the film IT: Chapter One, the interactive film Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, and the ninth season of American Horror Story, titled “1984,” all provide prominent examples of recent texts that have used the semantic texture of the 1980s as a dramatic setting.  The fact that these texts all use the ’80s as a context for horror stories suggests the sense that an undercurrent of demonic violence undergirds the glittering fads, suburban affluence, and Reaganite yuppieism associated with the 1980s, even as these te
