Abstract:

The poems of John Ashbery, Lyn Hejinian and Ron Silliman may seem to offer
endless small details of expression, observation, thought and narrative which
fail to hang together even from one line to the next. But as Elina Siltanen
shows here, this extraordinary flow of uncoordinated detail can stimulate
readers to join the poets in a delightful exploration of ordinary language.
When readers take a poem in this spirit, they actually begin to read as
members of a community: the community not only of themselves and other
readers, but also including the poet and other poets, plus all the speakers of
the language in which the poem is written. For all these different parties,
that language is indeed a shared resource, and the way for readers to get
started is simply by recalling or imagining some of the numerous kinds of
context in which the given poem’s words-phrases-sentences could, or could not,
be successfully used. The rewards for such proactive readers are on the one
hand a heightened sense of the subtle interweavings of language and life, and
on the other hand a freshly empowered self-confidence. The point being that,
within the community of contemporary experimental poetry, poets have no more
authority than readers. Rejecting older cultural hierarchies, they present
themselves as teasing out the idiomatic serendipities of their own poems
together with their readers.
