NEW BOOK: Yves Bonnefoy and Jean-Luc Nancy: Ontological Performance

Emily McLaughlin’s new book Yves Bonnefoy and Jean-Luc Nancy: Ontological Performance explores how poets use different kinds of formal experimentation to change the way we think, allowing us to try out new ways of perceiving existence and positioning ourselves within the world. Reading Bonnefoy’s relatively neglected late poetry in the light of Jean-Luc Nancy’s philosophy, it investigates how Bonnefoy and Nancy both conceive of writing as a performance that explores the world’s creative dynamics of exposure, not from the outside, but from within.

You can read more on this in the upcoming Polyglot newsletter.
