Summary:
"Beyond the Page examines the performance of poetry to show how it travels outside of writing, eventually becoming part of the cultural consciousness. Exploring a range of performances from early twentieth-century recitations to twenty-first-century film, CDs, and Internet renditions, Beyond the Page offers analytic tools to chart poetry beyond printed texts"-- Provided by publisher.
