About this book

This book examines contemporary forms of digital poetry in emerging technologies such as drones, machine learning, Instagram, virtual reality and mobile devices. Theoretical frameworks that engage with posthumanism, multimodality, hermeneutics and eco-writing are used to examine the changing shape of the literary artefact in the second age of machines. The book contextualises the necessity of a multidisciplinary approach for a complex artefact and gives a broad overview of the field and history of digital poetry as a subset of the genre of electronic literature. Naji examines Instapoetry and the literary algorithm, haptic hermeneutics and poetry apps. The discussion also engages with eco-writing and drone poetry, poetic mirror worlds, and mixed reality poetry, concluding with an examination of the future of poetics and literary expression in the second age of machines.

Reviews

"What has poetry become since algorithms learned to read? Jeneen Naji knows digital poetry and this book address that question beautifully. Digital poetry is in process, is in code, is in words and is made by gendered bodies. This book opens up a neglected field. It tells us why digital poetry is significant both as a literary practice and as an intrinsic part of broader digital cultures."

-- Professor Caroline Bassett, Director, Cambridge Digital Humanities 


"In this clearly structured introduction Jeneen Naji provides a handy, well-referenced overview of digital poetry, an overview that exhibits critical traction and displays an awareness of digital poetry’s potential for social engagement."
-- John Cayley, Professor and Chair of Literary Arts, Brown University 

 

"Provides a useful and valuable update to research in digital poetry/poetics"
-- Professor Christopher T. Funkhouser, Program Director, Communication and Media, Dept. of Humanities, New Jersey Institute of Technology  

 

Digital Poetry takes us beyond the frontier of poetic expression in the digital age by questioning its hybrid and multidisciplinary nature and focusing in emerging genres explored in various techno-environments. The field of electronic literature, where Digital Poetry sits, is constantly changing due to the speed of change of digital technologies and this book is a great contribution to this wider field exposing the evolving nature of e-poetry through its most current artistic practices and poetic expressions.“ 

-- Dr Maria Mencia, Associate Professor and Course Leader of the BA in Media and Communication, Kingston University, London
