Forms of resistance

Research output: ThesisDoctoral Thesis

Abstract

Forms of Resistance is an intervention in contemporary Australian poetics. Situated against the paradigm of lyric tradition, it argues that post-conceptual poetry must be social, and hence committed, in order to decalcify language games that perpetuate in unthinking suburbia as the banal expression of nationalist occupation. It targets poetries with a method of construction that perpetuate expressions of internal liberal selfhood and 'writes' poems through a set of uncreatively inflected reading exercises. The critique of the author as romantic individual in nature is made through a poetics of place that is ecological, critical, archipelagic and experimental.
