Manuel Portela: ‘Page Fields and Blank Spaces: Typographic Notation in the Poetry of Dennis Cooley’

In the poetry of Dennis Cooley ear and eye seem to parallel each other, creating a complex entanglement of aurality and visuality. While the dialect and the vernacular may be said to be the verbal engine of his poems, sound and rhythm are often dependent upon a carefully crafted topographical arrangement of words in space. By looking at the use of blank spaces, I will show how his writing treats the page as a field for scoring multiple voices, and for eroticizing and politicizing language.
