AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Although charged by the daemonic, the sacred and extreme, [Porter's] poetics is shot through, too, with awareness of fakery and illusion. Finally, the currents of Porter's work are connective, sparking off and from a lineage of charged poetry, especially, arguabley, of confessionalism, and a tradition of hierophantic poetics. This essay examines Porter's poetics within the context of this lineage' (19).
