Lyric Apocalypse

Milton, Marvell, and the Nature of Events

Ryan Netzley

A Fordham University Press Publication

Verbal Arts

  • Netzley offers fresh readings of two major seventeenth-century poets as a way to intervene in contemporary theoretical explorations of the category of the event, by Agamben, Badiou, Deleuze, and others.
  • Netzley's theorization of lyric poetry as an event in itself offers fresh ways to approach the politics of literature through form, rather than against it.
