Places that the map can’t contain: Poetics in the Anthropocene

Inspired by Lynn Keller’s notion of “the self-conscious Anthropocene,” the book sets out to consider poetry as a privileged space for rethinking our basic epistemological assumptions. Poetry does not have the kind of agency a direct political intervention has; in fact, as W. H. Auden famously put it, “poetry makes nothing happen.” On the other hand, poetry is crucial when it comes to awakening our individual and collective imagination. Considering the statement by Lawrence Buell that the current ecological crisis is, in the first place, a crisis of the imagination, this function of poetry comes through as particularly important.
