By Robert Sheppard (auth.)

This research engages the lifetime of shape in modern cutting edge poetries via either an advent to the most recent theories and shut readings of major North American and British leading edge poets.

Unsurprisingly, she attempts to read her poem in complicity with her theory rather than allowing the poem to rest—possibly at some remove from the certainties of theory—within an ongoing poetics that will remain conjectural and provisional. Perhaps it is the assumed authority of theory that disturbs, although she ironizes her decision impishly: ‘Having had the effrontery to use my own poems as examples I now hide behind my role’ not only by writing of herself in the third person as ‘the poet’ but also by distancing herself linguistically as ‘he’ (Forrest-Thomson 1978: 125).
