Scope and Contents

Jack Foley writes about language poetry, He states that in its movement away from speech and towards "writing as such," language poetry emphasizes the visual; writing is a visual art! However, it does not push visual into the realm of concrete or pattern poetry, which often cannot be spoken at all. "The words in language poetry CAN be spoken, even if speech is not the key to opening the poem. Concrete poetry is just one aspects of the 'experimental' with with language poetry does not concern itself." -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
