Yet more poetry

In literature, Stream of Consciousness refers to a “narrative mode that seeks to portray an individual’s point of view by giving the written equivalent of the character’s thought processes, either in a loose interior monologue, or in connection to his or her actions.”

On the other hand, Concrete Poetry is “poetry in which the typographical arrangement of words is as important in conveying the intended effect as the conventional elements of the poem, such as meaning of words, rhythm, rhyme and so on”.

A recent book, Every Day in the Morning (Slow) by Adam Seelig seems to combine both. Here is a review. and here is another.

For a paper on a pioneer of Concrete Poetry (bpNichol) and that poetry form’s relation to embodied consciousness, the paper “The Materiality of Cognition: Concrete Poetry and the Embodied Mind” may be helpful.
