About the Book

Against the busy background of the “information age” and the “anthropocene,” where’s poetry? It might seem invisible, irrelevant, but Demonstrategy proves it as salient as ever, and more urgent. In paired essays about poetry in the world and the world in poetry, Demonstrategy finds poetry’s pulse steady and strong.

About the Book

Demonstrategy shows that in an ever more technologized, globalized, militarized, racialized, monetized, privatized world, poetry is more important, not less.
