Poetics Journal Digital Archive

A complete archive of the ten issues Poetics Journal

The highly influential Poetics Journal, whose ten issues were published between 1982 and 1998, contributed to the surge of interest in the practice of poetics. Edited by internationally recognized poet/critics Lyn Hejinian and Barrett Watten, the journal presents major conversations and debates, and invites readers to expand on the critical and creative engagements they represent. This archive re-presents virtually all the articles originally published in Poetics Journal, organized alphabetically by author and in searchable form. It features indexes by contributors, keywords, and volume.

The writing that appeared in Poetics Journal reflects the development of a range of creative and critical approaches in avant-garde poetry and art over two decades. In making this content newly available, the editors hope to preserve the generative enthusiasm for innovative writing and art it represents, while encouraging new uses and contexts.

A Guide to Poetics Journal is also available, see http://www.upne.com/0819571205.html for more information.

Endorsements

"Poetics Journal has always helped me to situate a complex ecology of artists and theoreticians within multiple spheres of influence and community histories, and thus to locate the work of my own generation. A Guide to Poetics Journal, with its finding aids, indexes, and links, offers itself again as a critical intervention at the intersection of scholarly and creative genres, just as invaluable now as the journal was during its original publishing tenure."—Rob Halpern, author of Music for Porn

"Essential and forceful, this anthology proposes poetics as a site of investigation, intervention, and struggle. It is equally an energetic call for future work and an enriching overview of former compacts and understandings."—Rachel Blau DuPlessis
