Close Listening

Poetry and the Performed Word

Close Listening by Charles Bernstein
Not available
This volume brings together 17 essays, commissioned especially for this volume, on the reading of poetry, the sound of poetry, and the visual performance of poetry. While the performance of poetry is as old as poetry itself, critical attention to modern and postmodern poetry performance has been negligible. This collection opens avenues for critical discussion of the sound and performance of poetry, and offers a critical base for understanding language in - and as - performance.
