Poetry Matters explores poetry written by women from the United States and Canada, which documents the social and political turmoil of the early twenty-first century and places this poetry in dialogue with recent currents of feminist theory including new materialism, affect theory, posthumanism, and feminist engagements with neoliberalism and capitalism. Central to this project is the conviction that a poetics that explores the political dimensions of affect; demonstrates an understanding of subjectivity as posthuman and transcorporeal; critically reflects on the impact of capitalism on queer, racialized, and female bodies; and develops an ethical vocabulary for reimagining the nation state and critically engaging with issues of democracy and citizenship is now more urgent than ever before. Milne focuses on poetry published after 2001 by writers who mostly began writing after the feminist writing movements of the 1980s, but who have inherited and built upon their political and aesthetic legacies. The poets discussed in this book—including Jennifer Scappettone, Margaret Christakos, Larissa Lai, Rita Wong, Nikki Reimer, Rachel Zolf, Yedda Morrison, Marcella Durand, Evelyn Reilly, Juliana Spahr, Claudia Rankine, Dionne Brand, Jena Osman, and Jen Benka—bring a sense of political agency to poetry. These voices seek new vocabularies and dissenting critical and aesthetic frameworks for thinking across issues of gender, materiality, capitalism, the toxic convergences of nationalism and racism, and the decline of democratic institutions. This is poetry that matters—both in its political urgency and in its attentiveness to the world as “matter”—as a material entity under siege. It could not be more timely or more relevant.

So many people have inspired me throughout my lifetime, that most I will remember, and some I might forget, but charge it to my head, not my heart. First, I would like to thank God for giving me the gift of writing, and blessing me with the opportunity to share my personal thoughts with others, who may be going through similar situations. Secondly, I would like to thank my parents, biological and surrogates for their continued support throughout the years. Georgia Bellamy, for giving me life and doing everything in her power to give me happiness. Orton Bellamy, for being such a great step-dad. Thanks for your love and support. Tillmond Williams, for showing me that no matter what curve balls youre thrown in life, you can rise above them. Mr. Lindbirgh Bellamy, for always loving me, even when I was difficult to love and supporting me to fulfill my dreams. Dr. James L. Floyd, for literally saving my life, and stepping into a fatherly role. James and Patricia Livingston for being a great uncle and aunt, and always encouraging me. Reverend Benjamin F. Powell, and Ms. Lois Powell, for being my spiritual advisors as well as my second parents. To my sister Marian, I appreciate our relationship now more than ever. To my two grandmothers, Ms. Clara Bellamy and Ms. Peggy Bellamy for doing the extra things that my parents didnt do, like most grandparents do, to show me your love. Mr. George Green, for being the best Pop-Pop in the world. I miss you, but I know youre sleeping with the angels. To Aunt Ollie, Uncle Melvin, Uncle Paul, Aunt Louise, and Aunt Oleen, thanks for showing me kindness and love.

Making Poetry Matter draws together contributions from leading scholars in the field to offer a variety of perspectives on poetry pedagogy. A wide range of topics are covered including: - Teacher attitudes to teaching poetry in the urban primary classroom - Digital poetry and multimodality - Resistance to poetry in Post-16 English Throughout, the internationally recognised contributors draw on case studies to ensure that the theory is clearly linked to classroom practice. They consider the teaching and learning challenges that poetry presents for those working with learners aged between 5 and 19 and explore these challenges with reference to reading; writing; speaking and listening and the transformative nature of poetry in different contexts.

In his groundbreaking essay "Can Poetry Matter?" (reprinted here), Dana Gioia suggested that many types of poetry, assumed by some readers to be marginal art, should not so easily be deleted from mainstream American literature. Throughout the twentieth century, perhaps no important writing has been as seriously -- and mistakenly -- overlooked by the literati as Cowboy poetry. Essentially connected to the folk tale, to legend, myth, the ballad, and song, and vitally enhanced by the contemporary voices of independent ranch women, Cowboy poetry vividly connects us to our past and our fragile, threatened natural environment. The writers included here, both working horse-and-cattle people and mainstream authors, share the brand of bold expression and independent thought found only among the best literary artists. Here is not literary theory. Here is literary life. An anthology as diverse as America herself!
