Modernist Experiments

A reminder of your blog assignment: you can either (a) write a ‘Dadaist’ poem, following the instructions of Tristan Tzara‘s ‘To Make a Dadaist Poem’, or (b) write a poem, or the opening of a poem, in the style of Hope Mirrlees‘ ‘Paris: A Poem‘. (There are links to more resources on Mirrlees here, although you don’t need them to do this assignment.) You should then add a few lines of commentary, attempting to ‘construct’ meaning from your text in the manner we discussed in class on Tuesday. Tomorrow we will look at the work of Thomas Hardy, a much less obviously experimental poet, but nevertheless one in whom we can see the first moves towards a new kind of poetic language.

    Moustiques du monde
    Ecoutez-moi!
    Zzz Zzzz
    One, two, three
    This is my pillow
    Its color is yellow
    Voici mes paroles pour vous
    Et les enfants vous détestent
    Héhéé mort de rire!
    Green will kill you
    Hope to never see you!!!
