The sound of poetry, the poetry of sound by Marjorie Perloff( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sound--one of the central elements of poetry--finds itself all but ignored in the current discourse on lyric forms. The essays collected here by Marjorie Perloff and Craig Dworkin break that critical silence to readdress some of the fundamental connections between poetry and sound--connections that go far beyond traditional metrical studies. Ranging from medieval Latin lyrics to a cyborg opera, sixteenth-century France to twentieth-century Brazil, romantic ballads to the contemporary avant-garde, the contributors to The Sound of Poetry/The Poetry of Sound explore such subjects as the translatabil
The plurality of worlds of Lewis by Jacques Roubaud( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The geometry of life in prose and poetry by a French mathematician. In The End of Clouds, he writes: "Solitude suited them. Not that they were faltering, but there are different ways of sliding across the sky. I would never have thought that such soft, cottony concentration could be reconciled with such an exigent geometry. But how, without any support, consent to dissolution?" By the author of Some Thing Black

Essai
Blindsight by Rosmarie Waldrop( Book )

5 editions published between 1998 and 2003 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first, "Holderlin Hybrids," resonates against the German poet's twisted syntax, while using rhythmic punctuation in counterpoint to sense. "As Were'" says Waldrop, began with looking at the secondary occupations of artists - for example, Mallarme teaching English, Montaigne serving as mayor of Bordeaux - but this soon gave way to playing more generally with particular aspects of historical figures." The title section, Blindsight," is most consistent in its use of collage, juxtaposing words and images to jolting, epiphanic effect. "Cornell Boxes," in contrast, has a formal unity, inspired by the constructions of Joseph Cornell, each prose poem "box" composed in a structure of fours: four paragraphs of four sentences each, with four footnotes."--Jacket

5 editions published between 1986 and 1989 in English and French and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gap gardening : selected poems by Rosmarie Waldrop( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rosmarie Waldrop says Gap Gardening 'spans forty years of exploring the language I breathe and move in and that continues to condition me even while I try to contribute to it. It tracks my turn from verse to prose poems, to focusing on the sentence and its boundaries, my increasing reliance on collage and source texts as a way of engaging with other voices, of being in dialogue.' Gap Gardening also traces Waldrop growing sense of writing as an exploration of what happens in between. Between words, sentences, people, cultures. Between fragment and flow, thinking and feeling, mind and body. For the first time, we have a complete and clear view of the work of a great and inquiring, brave and indispensable poet."--

The form of a city changes faster, alas, than the human heart : one hundred fifty poems (1991-1998) by Jacques Roubaud( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Composed of 150 poems, with a title taken from Charles Baudelaire's Les Fleurs du Mal, and partly a response to the poetry of Raymond Queneau, this collection explores Jacques Roubaud's many poetic modes. He skips from the strict form of the sonnet to the freedom of prose poetry without abandoning the melancholy playfulness that has defined his lengthy writing career. A selection of Roubaud's best recent work, The Form of a City describes not only Paris, but also its people, its writers (and those of the Oulipo in particular), its monumental past, and its unsteady response to change."--Publisher's website
