Concrete and Abstract Poetry: The World as Text and the Text as World.
Shaw, Mary Lewis
Visible Language, v23 n1 p29-43 Win 1989
Examines the relationship of concrete poetry to "abstract" poetry (so labeled because its circular semantic play interferes with the image-forming aspect of representation). Analyzes the interrelations of these two types of poetry in the context of a poetic tradition centered in France. Asserts that both types aim to eradicate differences between the world and the text.
