Poetry. ANARCHIVE initiates an ongoing project that takes up the history of anarchist uprisings as a site for poetic archeology. ANARCHIVE investigates two propositions: that there is a necessarily familial relationship between poetry and anarchy, and that poetry is, moment by moment, built out of the inherent and sudden uprisings and insurgencies of language itself. Stephen Collis is a poet and critic who teaches literature at Simon Fraser University. He is the author of MINE, and the editor of the forthcoming COMPANIONS AND HORIZONS: AN ANTHOLOGY OF SFU POETRY.

Anarchive initiates an ongoing project: to take up the history of anarchist uprisings as a site for poetic archaelogy. Is there a necessarily familial relationship between poetry and anarchy? And can poetry be said to be built up from the inherent and sudden uprisings of language itself? Anarchive takes the Spanish Civil War as its springboard to investigate these questions and more.About the Author:
