John Donne s desire of More

"This volume is composed of thirteen essays by an international group of acclaimed Renaissance scholars on the presence of Anne More Donne in the poetry of her husband. In his epitaph for his wife upon her death in 1617, John Donne called her "Faeminae lectissimae, dilectissimaeque" - a woman "most choice" and "most beloved and loving": but these Latin terms of endearment also figured her as a woman both "well-read" and "very well-read." This book aims to endorse and to explore that view of her that is espoused by the poet in his epitaph through readings of his "readings" of her presence and absence as central subjects of Donne's own presentations of himself, his world, and his God."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

A dynamic account of the history, practice, and theory of poetry as performance. Distant Reading considers poetry as performance, offers new insights into its popularity, and proposes a new history of its origins. It also explores related issues concerning the reception of poetry, the impact of the computer on how we read poetry, the persistence of the letter "I" in poems by avant-garde poets, the strangeness of the line-break as a demand on the reader's attention, and the idea of the reader as consumer. These themes are connected by a historically contextualized and theoretically sophisticated discussion of contemporary American and British poets continuing to work in the modernist tradition. The introductory essay establishes a new methodology that transforms close reading into what Middleton calls "distant reading," interpretive reading that acknowledges the distances that texts travel from their point of composition to readers in other geographical and historical locations. It indicates that poetic innovation is often driven by a desire on the part of the poet to make this distance do cultural work in the meanings that the poem generates. Ultimately, Distant Reading treats poetry as a cultural practice that is always situated within specific sites of performance--recited on stage, displayed in magazines, laid out on a page, scrolled on the computer screen--rather than as a transcendent cloud of meaning tethered only to its words.
