Towards a Post-Projective Poetics
My doctoral project introduces what I call a Post-Projective Poetics. It functions within a spatial body and presents itself as ‘unplanned drift’ fixed only by ‘constant currents’ (Debord). The post-projective poem is vitally a site of plurality and my critical-creative project seeks to decipher ways into the shifting peripatetics of this contemporary form and to chart its open arrangement. The thesis explores a poetics of erasure, gloss, the archive, excess and thrownness, and builds on prior literature by bringing a phenomenological approach to bear on the consideration of textual elements and by deploying an interdisciplinary framework appropriate to the nature of a post-projective practice in contemporary poetry.
