Information overload is a subject of vital, ubiquitous concern in our time. The Poetics of Information Overload reveals a fascinating genealogy of information saturation through the literary lens of American modernism. Although technology has typically been viewed as hostile or foreign to poetry, Paul Stephens outlines a countertradition within twentieth- and twenty-first-century literature in which avant-garde poets are centrally involved with technologies of communication, data storage, and bureaucratic control. Beginning with Gertrude Stein and Bob Brown, Stephens explores how writers have been preoccupied with the effects of new media since the advent of modernism. He continues with the postwar writing of Charles Olson, John Cage, Bern Porter, Hannah Weiner, Bernadette Mayer, Lyn Hejinian, and Bruce Andrews, and concludes with a discussion of conceptual writing produced in the past decade. By reading these works in the context of information systems, Stephens shows how the poetry of the past century has had, as a primary focus, the role of data in human life.

The reception of the American avant-garde poet, playwright, art collector and salon hostess Gertrude Stein (1874-1946) has to a wide extent taken place in an aesthetic context prior to her work’s academic and hermeneutic canonization. This thesis is in part a mapping of this transmedia reception as it is played out in a North American context in the period from her death and until today, and in part an account of Stein’s particular collaborative poetics, through which her work invites such a reception. Furthermore, the thesis maintains that we in a contemporary context are experien­cing a still increasing receptivity towards Stein’s oeuvre, that seems more relevant today than ever before. These circumstances, the thesis illuminates and discusses via a media theoretical framework, where Stein’s own work, as well as its aesthetic reception is considered as embedded in a complex media ecology. Media ecology is here conceived as a de­centralized, networked approach to aesthetic phenomena, which is able to contain many types of agents and materialities. The media ecology of an artwork is thus po­tentially made up by the entire network of processes, agents and materials that are relevant to its production, distribution and consumption and influences the subject positions available to the individual agents. Through Stein’s aesthetic reception it is possible to catch sight of important compo­nents that are active in the media ecology but often neglected or considered subor­dinated to text-internal features. These include the material interface of the medium in question, the aestheticized persona of the artist and infrastructures such as the salon, which affect how and to whom the work and its meanings are distributed. The thesis also traces a number of parallels between the media situation of Stein in the beginning of the 20th century and the digital media situation at the verge of the 21st that suggest both explanations for and implications of her increasing contemporary relevance. Receptionen av den amerikanska avantgardepoeten, dramatiken, konstsamlaren och salongsvärdinnan Gertrude Stein (1874-1946) har till stor del ägt rum i konstnärliga sammanhang innan hennes verk kommit att kanoniseras genom akademiska studier och tolkningar. Denna avhandling är dels en kartläggning av denna transmediala reception, såsom den utspelat sig i en nordamerikansk kontext under perioden från Steins död fram till idag, dels en redogörelse för hennes specifika samarbetspoetik som uppmuntrat till en sådan reception. Dessutom hävdar avhandlingen att vi i en samtida kontext upplever en stadigt växande mottaglighet för Steins verk, som tycks mer aktuellt idag än någonsin tidigare. Dessa omständigheter belyser och förklarar avhandlingen med hjälp av ett medieteoretiskt ramverk, där både Steins egna arbeten och deras konstnärliga reception betraktas som inbäddade i en komplex medieekologi. Medieekologi förstås här som en decentraliserande, nätverksorienterad tillgång till estetiska fenomen, inom vilken många typer av aktörer och materialiteter kan ingå. Ett verks medieekologi utgörs således, potentiellt, av hela det nätverk av processer, agenter och material som är relevanta för produktionen, distributionen och konsumtionen av verket i fråga, och påverkar utformningen av de subjektspositioner som är tillgängliga för de enskilda aktörerna. Genom den konstnärliga receptionen av Stein är det möjligt att få syn på viktiga komponenter som är verksamma i medieekologin, men som ofta försummas eller betraktas som underordnade textinterna faktorer, till exempel. Till dessa komponenter hör mediets materiella gränssnitt, författarens estetiserade persona och infrastrukturer såsom salongen, som påverkar hur och till vem verket och dess betydelser distribueras. Avhandlingen följer också en räcka paralleller mellan Steins mediesituation i 1900-talets början och den digitala mediesituation som präglar 2000-talets inledning, vilka kan bistå med både förklaringar och implikationer av Steins växande aktualitet.

Not Born Digital addresses from multiple perspectives – ethical, historical, psychological, conceptual, aesthetic – the vexing problems and sublime potential of disseminating lyrics, the ancient form of transmission and preservation of the human voice, in an environment in which e-poetry and digitalized poetics pose a crisis (understood as opportunity and threat) to traditional page poetry. The premise of Not Born Digital is that the innovative contemporary poets studied in this book engage obscure and discarded, but nonetheless historically resonant materials to unsettle what Charles Bernstein, a leading innovative contemporary U.S. poet and critic of "official verse culture,†? refers to as "frame lock†? and "tone jam.†? While other scholars have begun to analyze poetry that appears in new media contexts, Not Born Digital concerns the ambivalent ways page poets (rather than electronica based poets) have grappled with "screen memory†? (that is, electronic and new media sources) through the re-purposing of "found†? materials.

Das berühmte Standardwerk von Simone de Beauvoir. Die universelle Standortbestimmung der Frau, die aus jahrtausendealter Abhängigkeit von männlicher Vorherrschaft ausgebrochen ist, hat nichts an Gültigkeit eingebüßt. Die Scharfsichtigkeit der grundlegenden Analyse tritt in der Neuübersetzung noch deutlicher hervor.
