‘Novel-Poetry: The Problem of Form, or the New Formalism’
Abstract: This presentation offers a new theory of genre and responds to recent scholarly trends that have been placed under the umbrella term, New Formalism (including ‘surface poetics’, ‘strategic formalism’, and ‘historical poetics’). The paper also offers a defense of humanities scholarship and of politically inflected approaches to formal issues.
