Session Five: Poetry II

agenda
Agenda
  • Genre specific aspects of the study of poetry
  • Assignment Three
genre specificity
Genre specificity
  • Poetry contains images (foot, shoe)
  • Images have to be interpreted to create meaning: entrapment / fetishism
  • The nature of interpretation: part and whole – the hermeneutic circle (Abrams, ”Interpretation and Hermeneutics”)
genre specificity4
Genre specificity
  • Plath: meaning (?) and sound - the repetition of /u:/ (you, do, shoe, achoo, blue, through, &c): rhyme
  • Frank O’Hara: meaning (?) and sight –

”[…] Then onto the

avenue where skirts are flipping

above heals and blow up over

grates.” (”A Step Away from Them”, ll. 8-11)

philip larkin this be the verse
Philip Larkin – “This Be The Verse”

They fuck you up, your mum and dad.

They may not mean to, but they do.

They fill you with the faults they had

And add some extra, just for you.

But they were fucked up in their turn

By fools in old-style hats and coats,

Who half the time were soppy-stern

And half at one another's throats.

Man hands on misery to man.

It deepens like a coastal shelf.

Get out as early as you can,

And don't have any kids yourself.

high windows
High Windows
  • When I see a couple of kids and guess he's fucking her and she's taking pills or wearing a diaphragm, I know this is paradise everyone old has dreamed of all their lives--bonds and gestures pushed to one side like an outdated combine harvester, and everyone young going down the long slide to happiness, endlessly. I wonder if anyone looked at me, forty years back, and thought, that'll be the life; no God any more, or sweating in the dark about hell and that, or having to hide what you think of the priest. He and his lot will all go down the long slide like free bloody birds. And immediately rather than words comes the thought of high windows: The sun-comprehending glass, and beyond it, the deep blue air, that shows nothing, and is nowhere, and is endless.
