About the Author:

Jon Clay is Lecturer in English at Richmond-Upon-Thames College. He is a practising poet.

Review:

"With wonderfully patient intelligence, and without ever succumbing to polemic, Jon Clay puts to work the lexicon of Deleuze (and Guattari) on a question that has haunted modernist poetics: what is it that poems do when you read them, especially when they are "difficult"? Very carefully, he sets out the terms and, just as carefully, he demonstrates their practicality through reading poems, many of them "recalcitrant", by contemporary UK-based poets, including Andrea Brady, the late Douglas Oliver, J.H. Prynne and Denise Riley. His close readings confirm the validity both of the method — one that is necessarily self-unsettling — and of the poems thus encountered.

This book is a very welcome contribution to the poetics and pragmatics of reading. It shows how it is possible to say what it is that poems do and how this is not the same as saying what they (seem to) say, all the while arguing that another('s) reading would be a different reading and thus call, perhaps, for another writing." (John Hall, Associate Director of Research, University College Falmouth (Dartington), UK)

Book Description Continuum Publishing Corporation, United States, 2010. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Poetry is composed of sensation: this Deleuze-Guattarian assertion is central to a Deleuzian poetics that provides a fruitful approach to the difficulties of innovative literature and poetry in particular. This book is a clear exposition of a Deleuzian approach to literature that treats the literary text, particularly the poem, as something that exists in its own right. As such poetry is presented as something that must be encountered, actualised and embodied by readers on its own terms, rather than providing access to something else that it represents. Far from being a hermetic, ivory tower encounter, the Deleuzian poetics of experimental reading reveals sensational significances that are not only philosophical and social but political. What s more, through a close examination of a range of contemporary innovative poems, Jon Clay suggests that a Deleuzian way of reading offers a firm purchase on notoriously difficult texts, providing concepts and a language that aids their understanding.
