Poetry Beyond Text: vision, text and cognition

This collaboration between Robert Sheppard, Professor of Poetry and Poetics at Edge Hill University, and Pete Clarke, Principal Lecturer in Fine Art at the University of Central Lancashire, is a visual assembly combining abstract colour shapes and blocks of text interacting with a “poetic of increased indeterminacy and discontinuity, the uses of techniques of disruption and of creative linkage” to apply Robert’s own descriptionof the Linguistically Innovative Poetry movement in which he has played a noteable part.
