A R Ammons And The Poetics Of Widening Scope

by Steven P. Schneider, A R Ammons And The Poetics Of Widening Scope Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download A R Ammons And The Poetics Of Widening Scope books, A. R. Ammons and the Poetics of Widening Scope explores the full range of Ammons's poetry, from the poet's first published poems in Ommateum to his most recently published long poem, Garbage. After contextualizing Ammons as a poet of science, Steven P. Schneider examines Ammons's relationship to his American Romantic forebears, Emerson, Thoreau, and Whitman. Key chapters are devoted to the connections between Ammons's poetry and contemporary vision theory, astronomy, and biology. Schneider presents new and penetrating readings of Ammons's central poems, such as "Corsons Inlet," Sphere, and "Easter Morning." The author argues that A. R. Ammons is committed to the concept of "widening scope." For Ammons, this refers to both his own cognitive and visual range and to that of his readers. Walt Whitman, in his 1855 Preface to Leaves of Grass, asked: "Who knows the curious mystery of the eyesight?" Over a century later, Ammons declares that "there is no finality of vision." Ammons's exploration of the expansive possibilities of sight and science enables him to extend the American visionary tradition into the late twentieth century. As a poet Ammons is not only keenly introspective but also intensely observant of the natural world. Schneider suggests that this inward and outward movement of observation in Ammons's work helps to explain why critics have identified him as both a poet of the mind and a poet of nature. This intersection of self and cosmos yields for Ammons a poetry of heightened consciousness of its own processes and forms. Ammons's poems also reflect and probe the intricate processes of the natural world, and Schneider writes lucidly about these complex scientific concepts - the light cone, quantum physics, the origins of the universe - in order to illuminate Ammons's poetry of cosmos and consciousness.

Wallace Stevens And The Poetics Of Modernist Autonomy

by Gül Bilge Han, Wallace Stevens And The Poetics Of Modernist Autonomy Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Wallace Stevens And The Poetics Of Modernist Autonomy books, Wallace Stevens and the Poetics of Modernist Autonomy presents a rethinking of modernist claims to autonomy by focusing on the work of Wallace Stevens, one of the most renowned poets of the twentieth century. By showing how multiple socio-political currents underlie and motivate Stevens' version of autonomy, the book challenges the commonly received accounts of the term as art and literature's escape from the world. It provides new and close readings of Stevens' work including poems from different stages of the poet's career. It re-energizes a tradition of historicist readings of Stevens from the 1980s and 1990s. The study of Stevens' work in this book is developed in constant dialogue with current studies in modernism and aesthetic theory, particularly those offered by Jacques Rancire and Alain Badiou. The book explores the question of autonomy in Stevens' exploration of the aesthetic and social domains, and the vexed issue of his poetry's relation to philosophical thinking.

Performance Theatre And The Poetics Of Failure

by Sara Jane Bailes, Performance Theatre And The Poetics Of Failure Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Performance Theatre And The Poetics Of Failure books, What does it mean to "fail" in performance? How might staging failure reveal theatre’s potential to expand our understanding of social, political and everyday reality? What can we learn from performances that expose and then celebrate their ability to fail? In Performance Theatre and the Poetics of Failure, Sara Jane Bailes begins with Samuel Beckett and considers failure in performance as a hopeful strategy. She examines the work of internationally acclaimed UK and US experimental theatre companies Forced Entertainment, Goat Island and Elevator Repair Service, addressing accepted narratives about artistic and cultural value in contemporary theatre-making. Her discussion draws on examples where misfire, the accidental and the intentionally amateur challenge our perception of skill and virtuosity in such diverse modes of performance as slapstick and punk. Detailed rehearsal and performance analysis are used to engage theory and contextualise practice, extending the dialogue between theatre arts, live art and postmodern dance. The result is a critical account of performance theatre that offers essential reading for practitioners, scholars and students of Performance, Theatre and Dance Studies.

The Poetics Of Biblical Narrative

by Meir Sternberg, The Poetics Of Biblical Narrative Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Poetics Of Biblical Narrative books, Meir Sternberg’s classic study is “an important book for those who seek to take the Bible seriously as a literary work.” (Adele Berlin, Prooftexts) In “a book to read and then reread” (Modern Language Review), Meir Sternberg “has accomplished an enormous task, enriching our understanding of the theoretical basis of Biblical narrative and giving us insight into a remarkable number of particular texts.” (Journal of the American Academy of Religion). The result is a “a brilliant work” (Choice) distinguished “both for his comprehensiveness and for the clearly-avowed faith stance from which he understands and interprets the strategies of the biblical narratives.” (Theological Studies). The Poetics of Biblical Narrative shows, in Adele Berlin’s words, “more clearly and emphatically than any book I know, that the Bible is a serious literary work―a text manifesting a highly sophisticated and successful narrative poetics.”

T S Eliot And The Poetics Of Evolution

by Lois A. Cuddy, T S Eliot And The Poetics Of Evolution Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download T S Eliot And The Poetics Of Evolution books, "Cuddy examines how the nineteenth-century union of evolution, history, and myth became Eliot's definition of the Western Tradition from Homer to the present. Homer's Odyssey and the tradition it inspired became one of Eliot's most successful paradigms for historical re/vision of women, father/son relationships, cultural evolution, time, and poet's struggle with words." "Guided by Eliot's own allusions and references to specific authors and historical moments, Cuddy adds a feminist, cultural, and intertextual perspective to the familiar critical interpretations of Eliot's work in order to reread poems and plays through nineteenth-century ideologies and knowledge set against our own time. By considering the implications and consequences of Eliot's culturally approved assumptions, this study further reveals how Eliot was trapped between the idea of Evolution as a unifying project and the reality of his own and his culture's hierarchical (and fragmenting) beliefs about class, gender, religion, and race. Cuddy concludes by exploring how this conflict undermined Eliot's mission of unity and influenced his (and Modernism's) place in history."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
