Poetry at Stake by Carrie Noland

Book Description

Taking seriously Guillaume Apollinaire's wager that twentieth-century poets would one day "mechanize" poetry as modern industry has mechanized the world, Carrie Noland explores poetic attempts to redefine the relationship between subjective expression and mechanical reproduction, high art and the world of things. Noland builds upon close readings to construct a tradition of diverse lyricists--from Arthur Rimbaud, Blaise Cendrars, and Rene Char to contemporary performance artists Laurie Anderson and Patti Smith--allied in their concern with the nature of subjectivity in an age of mechanical reproduction.

Books By Author Carrie Noland

Diasporic Avant-Gardes by Carrie Noland Diasporic Avant-Gardes, Paperback (April 2011)

This interdisciplinary collection examines the unacknowledged affinities (and crucial differences) between avant-garde and diasporic formal strategies and social formations. The essays foreground the creation of experimental forms and investigate the specific contexts of cultural displacement and language use that inform their poetics.

Agency and Embodiment by Carrie Noland Agency and Embodiment, Hardback (October 2009)

Examines the ways in which culture is embodied and challenged through the corporeal performance of gestures. Drawing on work in disciplines such as dance and movement theory, phenomenology, cognitive science, and literary criticism, this title argues that kinesthesia encourages experiment, modification, and, at times, rejection of the routine.
