9780748665747: Elizabeth Bishop: Lines of Connection

A new reading of Elizabeth Bishop's work ranging across archival, historical and theoretical materials
Linda Anderson explores Elizabeth Bishop's poetry, from her early days at Vassar College to her last great poems in Geography III and the later uncollected poems. Drawing generously on Bishop's notebooks and letters, the book situates Bishop both in her historical and cultural context and in terms of her own writing process, where the years between beginning a poem and completing it, for which Bishop is legendary, are seen as a necessary part of their composition. The book begins by offering a new reading of Bishop's relationship with Marianne Moore and with modernism. Through her journeys to Europe Bishop, it is also argued, learned a great deal from visual artists and from surrealism. However the book also follows the way Bishop came back to memories of her childhood, developing ideas about narrative, in order to explore time, both the losses it demands and the connections it makes possible. The lines of connections are both those between Bishop and her contemporaries and her context and those she inscribed through her own work, suggesting how her poems incorporate a process of arrival and create new possibilities of meaning.

Product Description:

Focusing on Elizabeth Bishop's experimental prose, relationship with surrealism, and association with the poet Marianne Moore, Linda Anderson explores the artist's innovative treatment of objects and observation in her work. Bishop's travels and stuggles reflected her dynamic, internal movements toward her poems, and her frequent return to objects and experiences, writing always across the distance of time, allowed her to incorporate not just memory but also the atmosphere of remembrance into her work. Bishop drew lines between things, figuratively and actually, to understand the dialectical relationship between the loss of objects and their recovery through writing, as well as our separation from and connection to them.
