Being in Love and Writing Poetry with Jeanne Heuving

Jeanne Heuving discusses the theory chapter from her forthcoming book Transmutation of Love, which regards the relationship between being in love and writing poetry. For epochs, poets have celebrated how being in love enables them to write poetry, and how writing poetry intensifies their love. Heuving explores how these relationships are important to the avant garde inventions of Ezra Pound, H.D., Robert Duncan, Kathleen Fraser, and Nathaniel Mackey. These poets change love writing to writing as lovers to beloveds to a libidinized field of scintillating word art.

Upcoming Presentations!

The IAS Research Colloquium for Spring Quarter 2013 also will feature a presentation by Amoshaun Toft. More information and colloquium archives are available on our website. Please get in touch with Meredith Field if you have questions
