Artifice and Indeterminacy  An Anthology of New Poetics, Beach, Christopher
11 Beach, Christopher Artifice and Indeterminacy An Anthology of New Poetics
University Alabama Press 1998 0817309462 / 9780817309466 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Near Fine with no dust jacket 
Looks Never Read! Still in shrink wrap. ; Modern & Contemporary Poetics; 392 pages;

Artifice and Indeterminacy gathers the strongest and most representative writings of the past two decades and shows more clearly than ever before the depth and breadth of contemporary American poetics. Collectively, these essays break with conventional interpretive frameworks and traditional generic boundaries of poetry to give fresh voice to the poetics of our time.

Neither dismissive of the aesthetic value(s) of poetry, nor reluctant to articulate the ways in which aesthetic evaluation is complicated by the mediating influences of history, culture, class, gender, race, and academic status, the writers presented in this anthology celebrate the artifice of the poetic text while also accepting as a given the indeterminacy of its inception and reception.
Individual pieces range in style and approach from theoretical writings to discussions of individual poets such as Emily Dickinson, Louis Zukofsky, and Bob Kaufman. The authors consider such critical issues as gender and the possibilities of a feminist poetics, the textual politics of race and class, and the broader implications of an avant-garde practice.
