Lyrical Visions: Use of the Image in Contemporary Poetics

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The use of the image with poetic compositions with images is hardly a new practice – consider Blake’s plates, the concrete poems of Apollinaire, Auden’s ekphrasis. While different in approach, each of these practices intersect with images and representation. Since the technological developments of Photoshop, JavaScript, and other such programs, the limits of how a poet can create, use, and/or manipulate an image have exploded.

This panel will be a hybrid of critical presentations and creative readings which interrogate the panelists’ and others’ use of art and imagery in their writing, ultimately considering the intersection between poetry and “the image.” This will include but not be limited to appropriative digital collage, kinetic digital poems, palimpsests, ekphrasis, and the word-as-image.
