Architectures of Poetryis the first comprehensive accounting of the currently intense dialogue between the sister arts of poetry and architecture. Refusing to take either term in a metaphoric sense, the eleven essays collected in this volume exemplify an exciting methodological direction for work in the humanities: a literal wager that is willing to take the unintended suggestions of language as reality. At the same time, they also provide close readings of the work of a number of important writers. In addition to a suite of essays devoted to the team of Arakawa and Madeline Gins, chapters focus on figures as diverse as Francesco Borromini, Rainer Maria Rilke, St phane Mallarm , Friedrich Achleitner, John Cage and Lyn Hejinian.
