READING DUNCAN READING:
ESSAYS ON THE POETICS OF DERIVATION
 
(Edited by Stephen Collis & Graham Lyons)
 
 
“No poet, no artist of any art, has his complete meaning alone. His
significance, his appreciation is the appreciation of his relation to the
dead poets and artists”
 -T.S. Eliot, “Tradition and the Individual Talent”
 
“I draw my ‘own’ thought in reading Dante as from a well-spring.”
  -Robert Duncan
 
Robert Duncan’s penchant for referring to himself as a ‘derivative” poet is
well documented if not notoriousâ€"and the extent of his poetic derivations
is readily apparent in his published works, where poem after poem enters

Translation in Literature

Fine literature does and should span centuries and continents. But have
you ever played telephone? Have you ever played operator?

What is lost in the translation of ancient texts or even contemporary
texts in different languages? How can the poems of Turgenev or the
initially oral tales of, say, The Iliad retain their meaning through time
and space? And if something is lost in translation, why must we strive
for transmission in this ever-shrinking, wi-fy connected world?

Interdisciplinary panel, paper, and creative submissions are invited for
the 14th annual Southwest Graduate English Symposium at Arizona State
University, Tempe, AZ, held Feb. 29-March 1, 2008.

“My little crazy beloved was serving me dinner, and through the dining
room’s open window I was contemplating the moving architectures that God
fashions from vapors, the marvelous constructions of the impalpable. And
I was saying to myself, through my contemplation, ‘All those
phantasmagorias are almost as beautiful as the eyes of my beautiful
beloved, my little green-eyed monstrous madwoman.’
        And suddenly I received a violent punch in the back, and I heard
a hoarse and charming voice, a hysterical voice and husky as if from
brandy, the voice of my dear little beloved, which was saying, ‘Will you
ever eat your soup, you goddamn cloud peddler!’”

Shifting Notions of Turn-of-the-Century American Lyric

39th Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
April 10-13, 2008
Buffalo, New York

This panel will focus on the relationship between late-nineteenth-century
American poetry, naturalism, and realism. Like realist and naturalist
fiction, poetry of the period engages with radical and rapid changes;
American lyric reflects these contradictions and flows in its form and
content. This panel is interested in the ways that social changes infuse
vitality into the form, how inherited traditions intersect and adjust to
changing political and social circumstances.

CONFERENCE ON ENGLISH POETRY 1950-2008, 27-28 JUNE 2008, PARIS SORBONNE-
PARIS IV
This conference will examine the nature, status and voice of poetry within
English culture from the perspective of the public/private dialectic. It
will aim to discern to what extent poetry can claim to make itself heard
beyond the confines of its often tiny readership (with certain
exceptions). Does English poetry have any real social or public dimension
or rôle? And with what authority can it claim to speak if it confines
itself to the albeit fascinating experimentation of a J.H. Prynne? Is
poetry capable of being both a private voice and civic discourse (cf the

How does the translation of social and cultural codes (re)invent gender?

Panel--Langston Hughes: Authenticity, Performance, and the Voice

American Literature Association
Memorial Day Weekend 2008
Hyatt Embarcadero
San Francisco, CA

Authenticity as a concept first attained prominence in literary studies
during the 1960s along with the rise of so-called confessional poetry and
anti-war protest poetry. Since then, the idea that literature should
accurately represent the writer’s experiences and views, in fact should
represent his or her own voice on the page, has remained largely dominant
despite some notable detractors.

CFP: [Poetry] Poetry and Education Conference in Dublin, Ireland: 22-23rd February 2008

updated: 
Wednesday, September 19, 2007 - 11:00am
Kit Fryatt

Poetry has always played an important role in education: the didactic and
mnemonic potential of verse has long been recognised; certain poems have
been regarded as essential to a good education. Recently, however, the
relationship between poetry and education has changed. The rise of
creative writing programmes in universities, increasing numbers of poets
pursuing academic careers, and a growth in writing workshop culture has
altered the way we see poetry in education and education in poetry.
Papers dealing with a broad range of issues relating to poetry and
education, past and present, are invited for a conference at the Mater Dei
Institute of Education, Dublin, Ireland, on 22nd-23rd February 2008.
