The strongest poems in The Last Shift, however, concern themselves with the relationship between working-class life and its romanticization in poetry--the question, that is, of how one properly poeticizes or mythologizes or waxes nostalgic about such traditionally "unpoetic" material as tool and die factories or, as Levine puts it, "Chevy Gear & Axle / grinding the night-shift workers / into antiquity." In the poem "Urban Myths," for instance, Levine writes that "In Detroit no one walks under the moon / much less talks to it or to the unseen stars / that years ago we stopped believing were there." Yet such resistance to lyricism--the implication that there will be, in Detroit, no moons or stars or gods or love or light--is counterbalanced by the poem's redemptive close:
As he acutely focuses on the interiority of his individualized self, Ruebner poeticizes a philosophical exploration on subjectivity, beauty and aesthetics, death and memory, and the unique relationship between place and dislocation that is so central to an immigrant's worldview.
In making such a claim, however, he also poeticizes war in ways that call into question quite how war relates to its historical moment.
Aristotle's commentary on the origin of poetry and catharsis is particularly relevant to Blok/Eko, as Tot's speech poeticizes what many of those around him have experienced, namely, physical anguish and suffering without the intervention of doctors.
In her first collection of poetry, published in 1795, we find a poem that suggests Brun's early approval of the French Revolution, in which she poeticizes her own republicanism.
Budick's Kant and Milton is a philosophy that poeticizes and a poetry that philosophizes.
Estevez also makes one of a kind books, like the one that was exhibited during a plenary session, framing Morejon's "Amo a mi amo," which poeticizes the love-hate relationship that bonds the slave and master, thus making each a slave of the other.
Robert Frost (1967a: 520-521) poeticizes both misanthropic recoil--"Back out of all this now ...
This basic dynamic of the R[a.bar]macarita as historical text is, for example, fundamentally parallel to Bilhana's contemporary Vikram[a.bar]nkadevacarita, which poeticizes the intra-fraternal struggles surrounding the accession of the Kaly[a.bar]ni C[a.bar]lukya king Vikram[a.bar]ditya VI--dealt with at length in the poem but ignored in Calukya epigraphy--which Lawrence McCrea has recently treated in a rich discussion of the political valences of Bilhana's art ("Poetry Beyond Good and Evil: Bilhana and the Tradition of Patron-Centred Court Epic," Journal of Indian Philosophy 38 [2010]: 503-18).
Like the "kissing" conclusion in Dante's above-mentioned lines, "Canzone, vattene diretto a quella donna" ("Poem, go straight to that woman"), the closing verses of "Dei sepolcri" appear, in Agamben's words, to collapse in silence and let "language finally communicate itself." In the soft purr of those final two words, "sciagure umane," Foscolo's vision of humankind healed from death finds its perfect sonic form, thereby reminding us that the literal end of the poem can also reveal the larger end or aim of poetry as such--through discourse that, to quote Agamben via Wittgenstein, "philosophizes" as it "poeticizes."
Emerson's figurative depiction of the self as the "metempsychosis of nature" in "History" (1841) provides an instructive prototype for the kind of expansive self Whitman poeticizes in "Song of Myself." (3) Emerson's assimilation of Hindu reincarnation and Pythagorean and Platonic metempsychosis into a new, subjective model for selfhood can be understood in conjunction with the Romantic Idealist desire to unify emerging scientific knowledge with traditional metaphysics.
