Concrete poetry

Related: typography - concrete - poetry

Practitioners: Stéphane Mallarmé - Paul Van Ostaijen


Concrete poetry is poetry in which the typographical arrangement of words is as important in conveying the intended effect as the conventional elements of the poem, such as meaning of words, rhythm, rhyme and so on. It is the self-consciously radical form of the technique of visual poetry (a term sometimes applied to concrete poetry). --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Concrete_poetry [Mar 2006]

Compare: Sound poetry

Sound poetry is a form of literary or musical composition in which the phonetic aspects of human speech are foregrounded at the expense of more conventional semantic and syntactic values; "verse without words". By definition, sound poetry is intended primarily for performance. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sound_poetry [Jul 2006]
