When we think of the future, we usually think in terms of technology, but the examination of where other areas are headed has utility as well. Here the editor considers post-postmodern poetry and visual art through the writings of contemporary practioners. - EL
Publisher's Site: What's next for contemporary poetry? - How do we write and think about poetry and visual art in the wake of postmodernism? Questions like this are central to poetry and art, especially when taught within an academic context. Another Future is a collection of critical essays on contemporary poetry, art, culture, and politics that investigates the current state of these fields by bringing together writings on the work of a number of poets and visual artists. Reading the social poetically and poetry socially, Gilbert illuminates poetic and artistic practices in the present and creates a new discourse for thinking beyond postmodernism. Both meticulous and comprehensive, Another Future makes an important contribution to the critical discussion of contemporary poetry and cultural aesthetics.
