Imaginary Cinemas in French Poetry

Christophe Wall-Romana

A Fordham University Press Publication

Verbal Arts

Cinepoetry analyzes how French poets have remapped poetry through the lens of cinema for over a century. In showing how poets have drawn on mass culture, technology, and material images to incorporate the idea, technique, and experience of cinema into writing, Wall-Romana documents the long history of cross media concepts and practices often supposed to emerge with the digital.
