RHUL Poetics Research Centre: Allen Fisher Talk, Thurs 28 March 2013, 7pm

Posted on 12/03/2013

RHUL Poetics Research Centre presents: Allen Fisher, 'Æsthetics of the Imperfect Fit'

Thursday 28 March 2013, 7pm (Room F3, 11 Bedford Square, London WC1E 6DP)

All welcome – RSVP to redell.olsen@rhul.ac.uk

"Æsthetics of the Imperfect Fit, a synthesis with an underlying theme of facture and æsthetic reception. Eventually the subject includes how meaning might be achieved by slow accretions and lead to aspects of truth telling. This subject is skewed by the poetics, confronted with the contradiction of the world as it is understood to be and the changing proposals for a different world...."
