Constellations of a Contemporary Romanticism

Mary Jacobus

Fordham University Press

Jacobus examines an opening onto futurity that emerges out of Cy Twombly’s works. Drawing attention to the artist’s interest in literary citation, particularly a tradition of lyric thought running from the pastoral to Romantic and post-Romantic poetry, Jacobus gives us Twombly writing a theory of poetics from within the visual, but not reducible to visualization. In Twombly’s dense figurations, the lyric describes the capacity to think through “painting’s and poetry’s silent invocation of alteration, within and beyond lyric time,” emphasizing movement and transition.
