Questions related to Poetry Writing
Rimbaud ceased to write poetry when he was 21. Up to that point, some consider the poetry he wrote started off modern poetry. He wrote of subjects that few poets had touched on before-initiating poets like Ginsberg.
Nevertheless, he sometimes reminds me of Villon in both his choice of subject matter and life-style.
What does the text reveal about the problematics of post-colonial identity, including the relationship between personal and cultural identity and such issues as double consciousness and hybridity?
My colleague Heidi Höglund and I are conducting a systematic literature review of research on poetry teaching through dance and visual arts. We are interested in both poetry reading and poetry writing in primary and secondary educational settings. We have searched various data bases and found about 50 articles to be assessed for eligibility. Now we also expand our search to possibly find articles not found in the data base searches.
Does any of you know of empirical articles (in English) reporting on this topic?
Thank you in advance!
(1) Public (media) discourse is mostly an industry of manipulation, in which facts and valid arguments are ignored.
(2) Academic philosophy is a scholastic play with concepts, which is mostly not interesting and which is mostly useless.
(3) Poetry can be enlightening and inspiring, but it is difficult to tell what is poetry, and what is an arbitrary play with words, without a clear meaning.
(4) I tried to join philosophical reflection and poetry into a sort of "reflective poetry". I wrote some "poems in prose" (in my/Croatian language) but I am not quite happy with what I have produced.
Can you give me some advice in this regard? - Suggest me some book of "reflective poetry". The authors I love the most are Nietzsche (in "Zarathustra") and Tagore (in "Gitanjali).
In the classical period, we find people writing poetry about scientific and philosophical problems and in the eighteenth century, there were many poems about landscape, natural science, e.g., Erasmus Darwin on the generation of plants, but in the nineteenth century, poetry ceased to be written about natural history or crafts or philosophy. What happened?
I'm undertaking research which involves children and their self-perception with regards to writing poetry/being poets. One aspect being self-efficacy, but I'm struggling wit finding a relible method of measurement. Ant ideas?
I am interested in the life and works of the 19th century English poet Alexander John Evelyn, the author (among others) of English Alice and Lyrics of the Sea. Unfortunately I have found no biographical info by Google searching; perhaps someone here happens to know about him? .
I am trying to find out if when one writes poetry, does one hear what one's poems would sound like in one's heads. More importantly, if writing in a second language (say English if you're a Turkish, Chinese, Indian, whatever), does the "mental pronunciation" in your sound like your local variety of English or does it sound British or American?
If we go by psychoanalytic theories, they prove that an artist has the capability to plunder deep into his subconscious mind but then he comes back to the normal world. The same is not in the case of Sylvia Plath. She didn't come back and finally committed suicide.
I'm putting together a PhD proposal looking at portraiture in poetry since modernism, and am interested to learn more about contemporary poets writing poetry in this vein.
Can anyone recommend me some articles on K.Douglas to consider on his own view of Life and Death?
I would locate reading of human-animal conflict in the broad purview of eco-aesthetics or ecocriticism. Poems that deal with the animal world in my view most often contain an ecocentric worldview. When human-animal conflict arises, what actually happens is a conflict between two prominent worldviews, viz., ecocentric and anthropocentric. The changing patterns of urbanization, consumerism and materialism makes our world more susceptible to such conflicts. I think poetry is a suitable literary poem to search for expressions on such conflicts. Can anyone throw more light on this issue?
I am interested in exploring how the conventions of the Detective Story have been explored in English Language poetry since modernism.
