By Eduardo Ledesma
With a huge geographic and linguistic sweep protecting multiple hundred years of poetry, this e-book investigates the relationships among and between know-how, aesthetics, and politics in Ibero-American experimental poetry. Eduardo Ledesma analyzes visible, concrete, kinetic, and electronic poetry that questions what the “literary” capacity, what constitutes poetry, and the way, if in any respect, visible and verbal arts might be differentiated.

Ledesma exhibits how José Juan Tablada (Mexico), Joan Salvat-Papasseit (Catalonia), Clemente Padín (Uruguay), Fernando Millán (Spain), Décio Pignatari (Brazil), Ana María Uribe (Argentina), and others flip phrases, machines, and, extra lately, the electronic into flesh, making word-objects “come alive” by way of assembling textual content to behave and appear human, even if at the web page, on partitions, or on screens.
Eduardo Ledesma is Assistant Professor of Spanish on the college of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
