Possibilities of Lyric

Possibilities of Lyric

Reading Petrarch in Dialogue
With an Epilogue by Antonella Anedda Angioy

Manuele Gragnolati and Francesca Southerden

Cultural Inquiry, 18

Berlin: ICI Berlin Press, 2020

Open Access

Opening to passion as an unsettling, transformative force; extending desire to the text, expanding the self, and dissolving its boundaries; imagining pleasures outside the norm and intensifying them; overcoming loss and reaching beyond death; being loyal to oneself and defying productivity, resolution, and cohesion while embracing paradox, non-linearity, incompletion. These are some of the possibilities of lyric that this book explores by reading Petrarch’s vernacular poetry in dialogue with that of other poets, including Guido Cavalcanti, Dante, and Shakespeare. In the Epilogue, the poet Antonella Anedda Angioy engages with Ossip Mandel’štam and Paul Celan’s dialogue with Petrarch and extends it into the present.

LAUNCH OF THE NEW WEBSITE OF PUBLISHER ICI BERLIN PRESS 
 
ICI Press

Welcome to
ICI Berlin Press

ICI Berlin Press is an independent, non-profit publisher exploring the possibilities of a hybrid publishing model: OpenAccess electronic books with a print-on-demand option and the international distribution this model affords. Not bound by the protocols of conventional publishing nor the disciplinary boundaries of academic scholarship, it promotes radical lines of questioning, diverse voices, novel approaches.

Founded in 2019, the Press draws inspiration from but does not limit itself to the ongoing research projects of the ICI Berlin Institute for Cultural Inquiry.
