Non-Lyric Discourses in Contemporary Poetry

Spaces, Subjects, Enunciative Hybridity, Mediality

Burghard Baltrusch and Isaac Lourido

The concept of «non-lyric» calls attention to the functional instability of poetry as a genre and of lyric as a discursive category today. This volume reflects on new discursive and cultural practices in contemporary poetry: the constitution of new subjects and new subjectivities, the function of the poetic in public space, enunciative hybridizations and the incorporation of intermediality. Its main purposes are to question the conventional identification of poetic with lyric and to analyze the defining elements of the non-lyric. This volume combines discussion of theoretical and methodological aspects with case studies of various poetic and cultural spheres: the Austrian, Brazilian, Spanish, Galician, Latin American, Polish and Portuguese spheres, oral traditions, and experimental and interartistic poetry, among others.
