Radical Spaces of Poetry introduces a diverse range of experimental writing from the twentieth and twenty-first centuries and develops a set of key ideas for reading the work. Using examples from the UK and the USA it explores the ways that this writing engages the reader emotionally and intellectually as it deals with some of the most important social issues of modern times. The book explores the sources of information for poetry as well as ideas of poetic meaning, and the ways that writers have used varieties of evidence to produce not only new information, but also new ways of working with information through innovations in poetic form. It examines the political, social and cultural implications of some of the most exciting and dynamic work of recent years, and the ways it produces discursive spaces for radical social and political perspectives.
