The new princeton encyclopedia of poetry and poetics pdf
The Princeton Encyclopedia of Poetry and PoeticsI t was James Dyson , inventor of not only a vacuum cleaner but also a hand dryer, who, when struggling to come up with the most abstruse and pointless subject one could study at university level, came up with " French lesbian poetry ". How, then, he would love this book. Although, alas, it contains no separate entry for French lesbian poetry, it does have two closely-set pages on lesbian poetry not to mention gay poetry and queer poetry , from which he might learn something, although I doubt he would be inclined to. Which would be a pity if my hunch is correct, for the very word "poetry" comes from the Greek "poesis", meaning "making" cf the Scots term "makar". We learn this from the entry "Poetry", which, although it could, in Borgesian fashion, itself be exactly as long as the book, confines itself to two and a half pages — as much, you will have noticed, as we get on lesbian poetry.
