A collection of essays on audio archives of poetry.
In literate cultures poetry addresses both eye and ear. But sound recording technologies have provided poetry with a new medium. The poetry recordings accumulated over a hundred years are numerous and extremely heterogeneous, both in terms of carriers (mechanical, magnetic, optical, digital) and sources (phonographic collections, radio and television broadcasts, reading series, private collections…). Audio archives of poetry need to be preserved, catalogued, disseminated and analyzed. Bringing together contributions by international scholars as well as two founding texts translated into French this collection lays the foundations for such a project and calls for an oral turn in literary studies.
