Langscape: Language, Landscape, and Memory, the Origins of a Poetics
Keywords:landscape, language, memory, poetics
AbstractThis essay is based on a series of prefatory remarks to a reading from my poetry at the Mapping the Imagination: Literary Geography conference held at the Università degli Studi di Salerno in March 2014. I selected these poems to read and comment on because they engage with the effects of landscape, language, and country on writing. These are recurring concerns in my poetry and they reflected on the mapping the imagination theme of this conference.
