Preview

This book brings together seventeen chapters, commissioned especially for this volume, on the reading of poetry, the sound of poetry, and the visual performance of poetry. While the performance of poetry is as old as poetry itself, critical attention to modern and postmodern poetry performance has been negligible. This collection opens new avenues for the critical discussion of the sound and performance of poetry, and offers a critical base for understanding language in and as performance.

Keywords: reading poetry; sound of poetry; performance poetry; modern poetry; postmodern poetry; language and performance

Book.  400 pages.  Illustrated.

Subjects: Literary Studies (Poetry and Poets)
