This book examines the international nature and importance of visual poetry and its links with other artistic movements in early twentieth-century Europe. In this detailed study, Willard Bohn recounts the history of visual poetry from the first 'calligrammes' by Apollinaire in 1914 to its subsequent spread to Italy, Spain and the United States. Professor Bohn traces the roots of modern visual poety to the later work of Mallarme and discusses the influences of Futurism, Ultraism and Cubism, thus placing visual poetry in its artistic context. After an extensive analysis of the poems of Apollinaire, Bohn provides an exciting theory on the imagination of Apollinaire, drawing on the work of Roman Jakobson. The study also provides detailed explanations of works by Soffici and Carra, Junoy, Foiguera, de Torre and Marius de Zayas.
