Description The Poetics of Waste de Christopher Schmidt:

The Poetics of Waste: Queer Excess in Stein, Ashbery, Schuyler, and Goldsmith examines how waste, in both literal and metaphorical manifestations - detritus, garbage, pollution, ordure - has affected 20th- and 21st- century arts and letters. In chapters devoted to Gertrude Stein, John Ashbery, James Schuyler, Andy Warhol, and Kenneth Goldsmith, I examine how these artists' depictions of waste refract the pressures of consumer capitalism, with its conflicting emphases on efficiency and disposability. While Waste Matters broaches economic and ecological concerns, it does so largely through the lens of poetic theory and gender-and-sexuality studies. In the 20th-century, queerness has often been figured as unregenerative, as an index of 'spoiled identity'- thus, the queer artist's engagement with waste may be especially identificatory and profound. Finally, because poetic writing is situated athwart typical channels of currency and exchange, the genre offers an opportunity for the queer writer to recuperate waste - to make waste matter. Christopher Schmidt is Associate Professor of English at The City University of New York, LaGuardia, USA. He is the author of a book of poems, The Next in Line, and his writing has appeared in Tin House, Boston Review, Arizona Quarterly, The Village Voice, Boston Review, SubStance, and other publications. He has taught at Bard College, Brooklyn College, Hunter College, and the University of Michigan.
