PANEL ON POETIC DIGRESSION for ESSE 2018 (www.esse2018brno.org)

From the parecbasis or ‘stepping away’ of Quintilian to the meandering twists and turns of the ‘loiterly’ work, this panel investigates the many and various modes of digression in poetry, figuring digression as a means through which we can rethink poetic effect - poetry’s grammatical, rhetorical, formal, philosophical, lyric and/or narrative power or force.

We invite proposals for conference papers exploring poetic digression and its effects. Topics for discussion might include, but are by no means limited to the following:
