Archaeopoetics: Word, Image, History (Modern & Contemporary by Mandy Bloomfield

By Mandy Bloomfield

Archaeopoetics explores “archaeological poetry,” ground-breaking and experimental writing by means of leading edge poets whose paintings opens up vast new avenues in which modern readers may perhaps method the prior, illuminating the dense internet of interconnections usually misplaced in conventional historiography.


Critic Mandy Bloomfield lines the emergence of an important historicist orientation in contemporary poetry, exemplified via the paintings of 5 writers: American poet Susan Howe, Korean-American artist Theresa Hak Kyung Cha, British poet Maggie O’Sullivan, and diasporic African Caribbean writers Kamau Brathwaite and M. NourbeSe Philip. Bloomfield units the paintings of those 5 authors inside of a energetic culture, together with past paintings by way of Ezra Pound and Walter Benjamin, after which indicates how those 5 poets create poems that engender new encounters with pivotal episodes in historical past, akin to the English regicide or Korea’s traumatized 20th century.


Exploring our shared yet imperfectly understood background in addition to omissions and blind spots in historiography, Bloomfield outlines the stress among the irretrievability of effaced historic facts and the wish that poetry may perhaps reconstitute such unrecoverable histories. She posits that this rigidity is fertile, engendering a sort of aesthetically enacted epistemological enquiry.


Fascinating and seminal, Archaeopoetics can pay designated recognition to the sensuous materiality of texts and so much in particular to the visible manifestations of poetry. The poems in Archaeopoetics hire the visible imagery of the notice itself or contain imagery into the poetry to suggest persuasive possible choices to narrative or discursive frameworks of ancient knowledge.
