About The Scene: What Do I Mean by Zig Zag Poetics?

What Do I Mean by Zig Zag Poetics?


September 1, 2017

I am concerned with the structural, theoretical bases for radical poetry—for the underlying philosophy of the language, style, the organic and inorganic essences.

I am not really concerned with cultural matters such as politics, feminist/gender matters, historicist issues, etc. in own posts. Yes, I have spent much of my career as a cultural critic and have written and published often in popular culture studies. But nearly everything we read about all the various radical poetry movements is based on cultural issues. Let’s simply consider the poetry as art, not artifacts. For reposted material that is a different matter. Come along and follow The Scene on WordPress as well as in social media.
