Bodies in contemporary German poetry

Owen, Ruth J. 2007. Bodies in contemporary German poetry. German Monitor 69 , pp. 269-291.

Full text not available from this repository.


Work by three poets who have articulated corporeal poetologies - Anne Duden, Durs Grünbein and Ulla Hahn - is at the core of the primary material examined, alongside body poems by Ulrike Draesner, Marcel Beyer, Brigitte Oleschinski and Albert Ostermaier. This investigation argues that contemporary images are defined by a shift from the external body to its hidden interior, by a shift from voicing spectatorship to voicing the body itself, and by the prevalence of volatility both in the form and the meaning of the body.
