What is Poetry? Poetics, Language, and Feeling

at Brooklyn Institute for Social Research -

What is poetry, and what is it good for? Today, poetry is often pronounced dead. Yet at the same time, we remain, to cite the New York Times, “poetry curious.” We sense, as Aimé Césaire sensed, that poetry encompasses some “greater feeling” that goes uncaptured by scientific classification and explanation. For Audre Lorde, poetry is...

The Ancient Novel? Magic, Myth, and Metamorphosis

at Brooklyn Institute for Social Research -

Is the novel an intrinsically modern form? Are prose works like Satyricon, Daphnis and Chloe, and The Golden Ass actually ancient novels?

Pornography: Aesthetics, Politics, and Pleasure

at Brooklyn Institute for Social Research -

Pornography is one of humanity’s oldest, and most enduring artifacts. Variously celebrated and demonized, it has decorated sumptuous palaces and been furtively sold under pain of arrest.
