Two Essays on Maiakovskii's Verse
Category: Literature and Culture

 

Detailed Description

The two essays included in this volume examine and illuminate the role of verse form in Maiakovskii's poetics. The first essay, 'How Maiakovskii's Ivan is Made: Measure in 150000000', shows how an aspect of verse form, in this case measure, can be exploited in such a way that the poem becomes in effect an exercise in measure 'as such'. The second essay, 'Maiakovskii's Hexameter', has a different focus and larger perspective: the hexameter, a classical form, in the poetry of the iconoclastic Futurist and metrical innovator Maiakovskii.
