You & Me & Ut Pictura Poesis Make Three: Illustrated Poetry after 1900 (NeMLA 2016, Hartford)
This panel invites examination of illustrated poetry, published after 1900, containing text by one person and images by another. Papers may treat broadsides, poetry chapbooks, children’s picture books, anthologies, and other illustrated poetic productions. Subjects for investigation can include contemporaneous collaborations; new illustrations of extant poems; or a retroactive application of older art to newer poetry. The focus of the session will be the collisions and collusions that occur between poem and illustration, including how the pictorial elements interpret, critique, subvert, amplify, or otherwise engage the text.
