Georg Witte to Speak on 'Instead of Approximate Precision – Precise Approximation.“ Jan Satunovsky’s Poor Poetry'
The lecture will address the poetry of Yan Satunovsky, a representative of the "Lianozovo" group (1950s/1960s), a circle of samizdat authors and nonconformist artists. The focus will be on the methodical 'impoverishment' of key components of the poetic language (rhythm, the controversial issue of a ‘prosaization’ of poetry, demonstrative use of simple forms from children's poetry and urban folklore, scarcity of images and 'graphic' visualization of the world represented, demythologization of names). The international context of an aesthetics of poverty as well as issues related to the translation of poems are also discussed.
