John Ashbery, Daffy Duck in Hollywood and Postmodern Poetry

Today I posted the last parts of both my analysis of Daffy Duck in Hollywood and my chapter on postmodern poetry.

These were part of a submission package for a book-length study of postmodern poetry for students but for various reasons the publisher and I could not see eye to eye, I think they felt me too daffy and I not even daffy enough, events occurred and I decided that although we need a proper introduction to postmodern poetry I was not the person to write it.

I am now working on a different project on postmodern poetry as exemplary of what I call the poetics of incommensurability.

Am left with this material which I think is good but perhaps not publishable in a journal so for now it finds a home here.
