Physical Description
viii, 207 pages ; 24 cm.
"Max Porter is amongst the most exciting British writers of the twenty-first century. His striking books straddle the divide between poetry and prose as deftly as they combine literary experimentation with mainstream success. This book is the first study of his works to date, which encompass Grief Is the Thing with Feathers (2015), Lanny (2019), The Death of Francis Bacon (2021) and Shy (2023). It features a broad interdisciplinary array of essays (by poets, novelists, literary critics, art historians and educationalists), which collectively place Porter's works in their contexts, shed light on his artistic vision and interpret his texts from a range of critical perspectives. The volume's twelve chapters combine readings of the literary, formal, intertextual and experimental aspects of Porter's works with discussions of their relation to social, political and ethical questions, whilst placing them in dialogue with highly topical critical and cultural debates, such as Englishness in the aftermath of Brexit, ecocriticism, affectivity and posthumanism"-- Provided by publisher.
