Title: On the creative (re)turn to geography: Poetry, politics and passion
Authors: Madge, Clare
First Published: 15-Apr-2014
Publisher: Wiley
Citation: Area, 2014, 46 (2), pp. 178-185
Abstract: This paper contributes to the debate about the creative (re)turn to geography through the lens of poetry. In considering the potentialities and limitations of geopoetics, I explore three issues in particular: evaluation of the poetic creative moment; poetry as a means of expressing an embodied, affective geopolitics; and the limitations involved in this particular creative move as a means of empathetic, passionate storytelling. The paper highlights the ambivalences and complexities of using poetry as a creative literary form of geographical world-writing.
