Towards a Poetics of Creative Writing, Hardback Book

Towards a Poetics of Creative Writing Hardback

Part of the New Writing Viewpoints series


This book offers an in-depth study of the poetics of creative writing as a subject in the dramatically changing context of practice as research, taking into account the importance of the subjectivity of the writer as researcher.

It explores creative writing and theory while offering critical antecedents, theoretical directions and creative interchanges.

The book narrows the focus on psychoanalysis, particularly with regard to Lacan and creative practice, and demonstrates that creative writing is research in its own right.

The poetics at stake neither denotes the study or the techniques of poetry, but rather the means by which writers formulate and discuss attitudes to their work.
