‘To ponder the fate of place at this moment assumes a new urgency and points to a new promise.’
Edward S. Casey, The Fate of Place, A Philosophical History
Thank you to my good friend and colleague, Karen Smith for introducing me to this book. It is fascinating.
I am going to be presenting on a panel this year at the NAWE conference and then in the states next year at the AWP conference, alongside Carrie Etter and other panel members. I am looking at the use of sense of place in UK prose poems. I am at an early stage in my thinking about this subject.
Can anyone recommend some good anthologies of UK prose poetry to me? If you have written in this form, it would be good to hear any comments from you about the use of place. I would like to talk about contemporary poets’ work within my paper, and feature some work.
I look forward to hearing from you, please email if you can:
