...), Jacques Derrida suggests that a poem can best be read by launching off from particular details (such as an appended date of composition) and exploring its many ramifications as far as one may go. On this view, a poem is neither a self-enclosed artifact nor a gateway to systemic verities but a starting and ending point for a voyage into ling. possibility. Marjorie Perloff ’s The Poetics of Indeterminacy ( 1978 ) agrees that poems open outward into vertiginous anarchic free play and speculation, but she also underscores that such moments of ...

...in whose interaction one feature or function plays the dominant role at any one time. Jakobson usually referred to that feature by using a substantive: dominanta . This impulse was carried forward by Tynianov in an attempt to understand and describe literary evolution as systemic change that reshuffles and rejuvenates the genre repertoire of lit. In Tynianov’s account, lit. grows by the margins: it incorporates previously nonliterary discursive domains populated by hitherto marginal genres. Literary forms are not born and do not disappear, but they...

...argues what Jakobson expounds explicitly: that auditory iconicity (i.e., phonosymbolism) is a dynamic generator of meaning in all lang. systems. This distinguishes Bely from his Fr. symbolist coevals, for whom poetic sound patterning is an impressionist gesture rather than a systemic object of fascination ( see symbolism ).

Samarin ’s recordings or Peter Adair ’s classic cinema verité depiction of Appalachian snake-handler glossolalists)...

... concrete poetry ), the use of words as building blocks possessing intrinsic value, without reference to any other reality. This structuralist approach is present in Romerske Bassiner (Roman Pools, 1963 ) by the Marxist poet Ivan Malinowski ( 1926–1989 ). In the esoteric, systemic texts of Per Højholt ( 1928–2004 ), a major figure in Danish poetic modernism, lang. is transformed into intellectually challenging signs and closed symbols. Characteristic for Højholt’s experimental and often humorous approach are Poetens hoved (The Poet’s Head, 1963 ), ...

...interlocutor, conversational apostrophe , quiet humor, anaphora , and avoidance of strident effects. Esoteric lyricism and declamation are both rare. The stresses that urban cultures impose on rural life and on personal values and identity are common themes, as well as the systemic effects of colonial and postcolonial hegemony. In form and themes, the poetry of this region adapts Eng. to provide sophisticated but unaffected articulation of traditional Af. worldviews in a context of rapid social change. Af. poetry in Eng. displays an immense cultural and...
