    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    Roman Jakobson’s semiotic theory uniquely analyses poetic form. His linguistic and semiotic research covers much more than the few essays that are usually referred to. Jakobson never thought his work would be reduced to the axial model of poetic function and the formula for verbal communication. He himself would have expected that his theories and observations would be proved and developed. In this book, essays include reviews and developments of: Jakobson and metonymy, Jakobson and deictics and shifters, Formalist theory and practice, Jakobson’s axial model, poetic function, poetry and parallels, investigation of a city poetic. Poetic praxis includes analysis of poems by: Blake, Wordsworth, David Jones, Mayakovsky, Sarah Wardle, Rosemary Tonks, Tony Lopez and Mary Coghill. There is also a new translation of Jakobson on Mayakovsky and Dostoyevsky. Semiotics has an important role to play in the analysis of poetry. This book provides an opportunity for semioticians to explore a semiotic analysis of poetics and for poets to explore the deep structure of their work. The book will be of particular interest to students and researchers of semiotic and linguistic theory, Creative Writing and English Literature degrees. The praxis will interest practicing poets.
