Flet : a novel by Joyelle McSweeney( Book )
2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Flet goes down in a spaced-out, delimited future in which all cities have been evacuated after an oft-invoked "Emergency." As the decentralized citizenry brings on the endless, aimless filetape transmissions draining into their homes, our eponymous heroin, a quiescent-but-full-of-agency Administration flunky, is poignantly alone in her suspicion that the Emergency is a tool of sociopolitical manipulation, if not oppression. A face-off between this tentative muckraker and her icy superior is inevitable at the mandatory, nationwide Reenactment, in advance of which Flet finds herself dreaming and driving endlessly off the map. Will she find the missing cities, or will she lose herself in the flood-tide of images that wash over the Nation? -- Book cover

The necropastoral : poetry, media, occults by Joyelle McSweeney( Book )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
" In The Necropastoral: Poetry, Media, Occults, poet Joyelle McSweeney presents an ecopoetics and a theory of Art that reflect such biological principles as degradation, proliferation, contamination, and decay. In these ambitious, bustling essays, McSweeney resituates poetry as a medium amid media; hosts "strange meetings" of authors, texts, and artworks across the boundaries of genre, period, and nation; and examines such epiphenomena as translation, anachronism, and violence. Through readings of artists as diverse as Wilfred Owen, Andy Warhol, Harryette Mullen, Roberto Bolano, Aime Cesaire, and Georges Bataille, The Necropastoral shows by what strategies art persists amid lethal conditions as a spectacular, uncanny force"--

In extremis : on poetry, subversion & violence ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
In this dynamic conversation (interspersed with readings), three poets, critics and editors ask: What does contemporary poetry gain--and what does it lose--by seeking its own extremes, or trying to violate its own bounds? What are the connections--or contradictions--between the way we imagine innovation, and the way we imagine violence? When do we want new poets to sound or look or be revolutionary, or subversive, or aggressive, and when do we want something else? Why do these questions seem salient now, and for whom? And what do they have to do with the creative decisions made by critics, by translators, and by editors, both in the United States and internationally?
