Poetry, Publishing, and Visual Culture from Late Modernism to the Twenty-first Century

Fugitive Pieces

Natalie Pollard

  • A fresh approach to twentieth-century and contemporary literature and its entanglement with the visual and plastic arts and with nonhuman agencies. It reads poetic texts as coming into being with and through a number of ongoing mutable forces, both human and nonhuman: ink, paper, stone, water, plastic, birds, larval, and decompositional processes
  • A new and non-divisive account of a range of twentieth- and twenty-first-century poetries, that reads Modernist literary practices to the Contemporary through the concept of fugitive (vulnerable, uncertain, and embodied) reading
  • Includes a chapter on Ted Hughes and Paul Muldoon that offers a significant new interpretation of artistic collaboration
  • Explores neglected sympathies between avant-garde and innovative, mainstream, and canonical poetries
