The Visual Lives of Poems

This panel explores the rich, multiform intersections between modern American poetry, visuality, and visual cultures. How were poems mediated by visual technologies like film and photography? What do print practices that combine poetry with visual art have to tell us about verse cultures in the first half of the century? And how did poems remediate and engage with visual culture? Building on scholarship that has expanded our understanding of modern American poetries beyond the easy binaries of high versus popular modernisms and genteel versus avant-garde traditions, this panel seeks to cut across these classifications and instead consider modern American poetries as, in part, an engagement with the provocations and possibilities of visual media.
