Poetics - Capital and Poetics

Keston Sutherland

In this course we will read Marx's Capital closely, chapter by chapter, with the aim of mobilizing some of the figures and latent concepts in the critique of political economy for use in thinking about radical poetry and poetics today. We will investigate how far Capital itself and the whole logic of the capital-relation depends on poetic figuration and whether or not Marx proposes a concept of poetry. Alongside Capital we will read work by contemporary poets in English.

Sample reading list:
Karl Marx, Capital
Karl Marx, Selections from Collected Works

Other Requirements:
Open to Graduate Students Only.
