9781474282093: The New Poetics of Climate Change: Modernist Aesthetics for a Warming World (Environmental Cultures)

Climate change is the greatest issue of our time – and yet too often literature on the subject is considered only in the bracket of 'environmental' writing, divorced from culture, society and politics. The New Poetics of Climate Change argues instead that the emergence of global warming presents a fundamental challenge to the way we read and write poetry – the way we think – in the modern age.

In this important new book, Matthew Griffiths demonstrates that Modernism's radical reinvigorations of literary form over the last century represent an engagement with key intellectual questions that we still need to address if we are to comprehend the scale and complexity of climate change. Through an extended examination of Modernist poetry, including the work of T. S. Eliot, Wallace Stevens, Basil Bunting and David Jones, and their influence on present-day poets including Jorie Graham, Griffiths explores how Modernist modes can help us describe and engage with the terrifying dynamics of a warming world and offer a poetics of our climate.

About the Author:

Matthew Griffiths is a poet and literary critic.

Review:

Matthew Griffiths offers some lucid and exciting reappraisals of Modernist poets, including some less often discussed (David Jones and Basil Bunting). He traces in these innovative texts the emergent forms of a global environmental ethic. Once fully recognised, the inventiveness of these modernist poets offers a gauge for the possibilities, limitations and strengths of climate change poetry in our own time.
Professor Tim Clark, Professor in the Department of English Studies, Durham University, UK

A thoughtful and searching book which looks back as well as forward to think about the poems and poets of our climate. By exploring how Modernism and global warming disrupt our cherished conceptions of the world, Griffiths shows how poetic experiment and formal innovation can help articulate humanity's entanglements with its changing environment.
Dr Samuel Solnick, William Noble Research Fellow in English, University of Liverpool
