The Necropastoral characters à 100 H readings of artists as diverse as Wilfred Owen Andy Warhol Harryette Mullen Roberto Bolaño Aimé Césaire and Georges Bataille The Necropastoral shows by what strategies Art persists amid lethal conditions as a spectacular uncanny for. HooooooooHow Art was a silver paper moulded to the ceilingWhere you cut your hairFor your rebirth as Fata AndrogyanaThe scissors sister who slits where she goes intoCuts as she cuts Yesterday I was at a Lydia Davis reading and the prose guy who was introducing her kept saying there was no precedent for her that her voice was her own blah be blah be blah And as soon as she started reading I thought Russell Edson And when prose guy asked her about what she read when she was young she said Russell EdsonSo riding high on having successfully noticed a thing once I m just going to guess here one part in the rhizomisphere in terms of the poetics of the poems and oppositional rhetoric of the prose Amiri Baraka For poetics see constant enjambment of relatively short lines rhymes of short vowels and a general brilliance re rhythm For a total of twelve hours at a clipThe go home and feed the baby milk of itThat man is a mouth chased by ghostsRound a rainslicked hairpin off a cliff in And like AB McSweeney has been gleefully crossing and inverting genres sci fi horror etc o man I wish I had time to read Baraka s essay on Sun Ra s sci fi poetry right now blowing up the expectations we bring to these genres as readers and after the concussion forcing us to re assemble them out of the rubble I m still working out what is being said about the pastoral anachronism and etc though if you want that there are plenty of re interpreters out thereWhat I ve been thinking about is this part of the supposed purpose of oppositional rhetoric is that it is catalytic Some are mobilized and some are repelled It seeks to create a divisive rupture in the audience and a protected social space a flammable wall for those on behalf of whom the rhetoric is employed That is AB s poetics and rhetoric were at times and are linked to a definitive social practice of a self articulated group Is McSweeney s art arriving at a similar crossroads Who is behind her flammable wall It doesn t have to be and there doesn t have to be anyone These are not uestions of value but of relations I feel agitations reading The Necropastoral I don t understand anything

Summary ↠ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ✓ Joyelle McSweeneyThe Necropastoral

The Necropastoral characters à 100 CSweeney resituates poetry as a medium amid media; hosts “strange meetings” of authors texts and artworks across the boundaries of genre period and nation; and examines such epiphenomena as translation anachronism and violence Throug. You thought you could Death On your own terms Do writes Joyelle McSweeney in the course of The Necropastoral a book dedicated to the uncontrolled nature of aesthetics to art s need for a hematomic Arcadia in which the doing of death is kept on its own terms out of our hands discordantly askew To speak of an uncontrolled nature of course as though it were the true nature of nature to be so uncontrolled is to risk negating the lack of control of which one speaks nature in itself being a word so infused with exotic landlordism that even and especially in its violent wildness it has been colonized by the pastoral which the title of this short work both summons and decays Indeed to what extent we might wonder is nature in itself ever only a pastoral concept When we speak of its hostility when we recoil from its by turns icky and terrifying ability to plague and overwhelm the viability of our very existence with its ichor and its earthuakes on what level can we say that nature remains natural In what way does it abide by the law of the possibility of something s placement within it rather than offend the very idea of any coterminous vegetation inside its sphere when this machine make its need louder and Invites me into its duct unlike the baby Sleeping on the other edge of Pow r Eyes roll d mouth pinch d shut Round Pow r s earthly sinks and shunts And knowing this to what degree do we naturalists simply wish to sleep the sleep of the baby dozing dreams larger than the ungrounded earth close eyed on power s other edge sleepwalking lords of the star of dominion with its Nazi hinges Singe ing yoursFor McSweeney the pastoral is a sham But in saying it is a sham it is also much than a mere alibi for a pecking order or a deceitful aristocratic misconstrual of the unbound mediumicity of things although it is undoubtedly deployed as a brutal weapon on the basis of both of these motives For all this however as she writes early in the piece as with the occult and as with Art itself the fraudulence of the pastoral is in direct proportion to its uncanny powers These powers and their uncanniness are therefore to be understood as the secret of the pastoral the anachronistic artifice of its status as a set of egregious counterfeits and outrageous copies copies and counterfeits which are inhibited from being understood kept secret as such largely by a pastoral orthodoxy that is itself pastoralized in a meta movement dreamed into a didactic or allegorical distance seuestered in the cerebral complex of the idea of the scaped and the simple classically framed about the life and society of shepherds not as set down by themselves but as hallucinated by class warring scribblers and courtiers Thus for McSweeney the problem of the pastoral is not the form at all but rather its corseted comportment upon which she sets this mad cow of criticism poetic essayistic effigial toward the cause of for once and truly all having an at home experience As all pastorals must have their shepherd if only it be the scenery itself so here the shepherd of this pastoral is the key figure of the poetic seuence dubbed King Prion upon whom the book comments self mockingly Looks just like nutrition Acts just like an avatar Prions we must remember are pathogens of a singular and peculiar kind Unlike other disease causing agents the prion is not bacterial fungal viral nor parasitical and holds no genetic material or nucleic acids Rather it is a protein a thing that transpires in us normally usually in an undamaging form But by folding into an aberrant shape this normal prion becomes a rogue agent and transmutes other normal prions into rogues alongside it particularly afflicting the structure of the brain and its neural tissue in a development at present untreatable and universally lethal The link between proteins the molecular machines of our body and their prionic as perhaps opposed to bionic malfunction points thus to a corruption in mediation itself as an aberrancy of figure of fold unleashes genesis as flaw as anachronism as Weeping wound Shedding copies of itself To appreciate this obscene plethora of the possible this necrotic landscape convulsing with germination suppurating time in which the normal s abnormal reproduction becomes perfectly fatal it is not enough to look to medicine One must look to media to the problem of the uncanny powers that this thing called body is infused with and atmosphered by like a balloon underworld where we things of mere material to paraphrase Pennywise the Clown float too So it is then that the shepherd of McSweeney s missive our King Prion is less sovereign than effigy as all pastoral shepherds ultimately are a wicker man of a burial berth In the afterlife s Low slung motel mid roadtrip mid Lincoln Continental divide a burning man of an afterlife and a divide that takes its place neither in future nor past but in every moment s ulterior in its replacement for suicide which is to say in its plague of anachronism its Velvet Underground which is art and art s association to the capacity for survival in death and where as she writes the exaggeration and febrility of the figures the colors and the landscape suggest inflammation illness both approaching death and suspension in a would be timeless place a cinematic Elysium into which les incroyables have crossed along with their plague To be plagued is for McSweeney to be protean It is also to be archival amid orchestrated erasure History she asks We ll all be deadAs in Bomb them back into the stone age If prions indicate the incapacity for the normal to be free of terminal anomaly the time of anomaly comes to indicate the capacity for us to be free by the same logic of the incapable terminus of the normal into which anachronism media the deviancy of the real explodes as if it were of a mind of its own but not Death s issue Casts his Bolt From the blue to the brain Like a bolt in the brain And if one day the metastatic logic of prions should be at last cured as the survivors of lost loved ones and the science of human health can only hope the treatment itself will have to consist of a necropastoral care this aesthetic criticism is itself prefiguring one based upon the cleft that is nature s inconsistency with itself its direct proportion to the fraudulence of its ironclad processes that are themselves in direct proportion to the exorbitant pastoral s uncanny powers However lest we get too comfortable with such a vision of a future in which we are able to carry our plagues with us into Arcadia we must be aware that the metaphysical problem of the prionic will not vanish with such a cure nor Arcadia cease its hemorrhaging We would not be one step closer to the immortal in the absence of the mortal conseuences of pathogenetic normality runs McSweeney s thesis as just all the lost in medias res our artfully supplemented de rogued molecular machines ripe not for finally landed leisure but for different genres of dispersal The Afterlife A Necropastoral There scum will be superstars but the stars won t rise The uppers shall be downers In slime A convulsive sublime Perhaps the most unaesthetic notion possible for McSweeney is accordingly the reduction of nature to an ethical imperative and thus of freedom to an organic fulfilment a biopastoralism a honing in on the formula for us to be one with the sleeping baby of things To which she says knowing counterrevolution s reification of death when she sees it Nice Try hot Shot King Prion King Prion King

The Necropastoral characters à 100 In The Necropastoral Poetry Media Occults poet Joyelle McSweeney presents an ecopoetics and a theory of Art that reflect such biological principles as degradation proliferation contamination and decay In these ambitious bustling essays M. This was given to me as a gift last year and I finally decided to pick it up Joyelle McSweeney clearly knows how to handle language Although the middle section of the book was difficult for me to understand at times I was always fascinated by her ownership of rhythm and rhyme There are some beautiful sounds in this book McSweeney also has an expansive vocabulary and knows how to use words wisely Her word choice creates a luxurious campy reading experience The feeling of campiness is emphasized by the fact that she uses Jack Smith s Normal Love as an example throughout the work Of course the movie s creator helped found the idea of camp as we know it so it only emphasized that moodI enjoyed McSweeney s argument about the pastoral She argues that we create a parallel universe to our own the pastoral where we can escape in times of illness predominantly physical illness but it is insinuated at times that it iscan be emotional Although the pastoral is idealized for it s simplicity and for nature itself we enjoy exaggeratingaltering it The pastoral convulses on itself it distorts time It is the past the present and the future McSweeney argues that this place is also euivalent to art the occult and death itself the fake these places are the powerful they areThese arguments were established in the first section of the collection an essay that uses Normal Love to explain her definition of the pastoral They were explored in a list poem at the end of the collectionThe middle section a series of poems titled King Prion did not add much to this exploration While some were relatively well written they brought the collection down overall
