Silence in Contemporary Poetry
Kristina Marie Darling
It is widely known that John Cage’s “4’33” initiated a conversation on the work of silence in musical performance. This book analyzes the relationship between silence, formal innovation, and social justice in recent poetry by women, non-binary writers, and writers of color.
