Works about this Work

Religion, Eroticism and Being's Continuity : A Reading of Kevin Heart in the Light of Bataille's Theory Zhang Shaoyang , 2012 single work criticism
— Appears in: Antipodes , June vol. 26 no. 1 2012; (p. 79-85)
'It is well known that Australian poet Kevin Hart is interested in the relationship of theology and deconstruction, and that he is sympathetic to theorists such as Emmanuel Levinas, Maurice Blanchot and Jacques Derrida, as well as to the dual tradition of theology (positive and negative). However, it seems to have gone unnoticed that Hart's poetry is also close to the thinking of Georges Battaille. To testify to this point, this essay explores how Hart's writing is resonant with Bataille's theory on religion and eroticism, and demonstrates, in the meantime, the ways of obtaining intimacy with the deity,or continuity of being, by reading two of his major poems, 'The Hall' (Hart, Flame Tree 194-4) and 'Madonna' (195-200), with some references to Bataille's works, including The Impossible, Story of the Eye, and L'ABBE C.)'

— Appears in: Coolabah , no. 1 2007; (p. 24-35)
'In a deconstructive fashion, this paper analyses the Heideggerian concept of Bodenständigkeit ("rootedness") from the point of view of the Boden ("earth", "ground") in general, that is, before its diffraction as Bodenständigkeit and Bodenlösigkeit ("uprootedness"). Whereas Heidegger makes of the concepts of "description" and "expression" two species of the genre Bodenständigkeit, we will proceed otherwise, and derive them from the general concept of Bodenlösigkeit ("uprootedness"). In this way, following the threads of the poetry of Kevin Hart, we will suggest that it is possible to affirm that all poetry is about finitude, contingency and destiny, both from the point of view of its form and of its content. In the course of our analysis, we will wonder about the role of identity and alterity in the construction of Australian identity. Source: Carles Serra Page.
