Multiformalisms: Postmodern Poetics of Form
Multiformalisms: Postmodern Poetics of Form explores new directions in poetic form and theory. The “multi” in “multiformalisms” is nothing if not multifarious. This collection of essays by important poets and critics investigates traditional and exploratory forms, as well as the ways cultures and histories have come to shape them. Multiformalisms juxtaposes essays on traditional formalism and flarf; the American long poem and native Hawaiian poetry; rhyme in Paul Muldoon and textual variability in New Media poetry; Susan Howe and Lucinda Roy, jazz and Asian American poetics, and more.
