Excl. tax

By Magdalena Zurawski. Published by Ugly Duckling Press.

Poet and educator Magdalena Zurawski argues for the necessity of poetry as a site of anticapitalist knowledge and nonproductive social relations in this essay, which brings together her readings of Robert Duncan, Zora Neale Hurston, Kant, Wordsworth and others with her experience teaching poetry and poetics in a state university. Meditating upon these connections, Zurawski embraces the illogic of arguing a freedom "for and through feeling" in her rejection of the affective impoverishment of life under neoliberal market logics.
