Editorial Reviews


"Discusses writers from Mallarme and Jean Epstein to Max Jeanne and Nelly Kaplan." -The Chronicle Review

"Wall-Romana uncovers a not previously recognized genre in French literature: cinepoetry: a modernist poem that responds to challenges the cinema posed to writing. This book traces the new genre from Mallarme's Une Coup de Des to contemporary work, revealing how poets have found inspiration in cinema's visuality, control of movement and projected light--and in the process discovered new forms for poetry."--Tom Gunning, University of Chicago

"This long-awaited book uncovers new territory for French literature and cultural studies, French film and intermedia, and poetics and new media, revealing the literary projects--cinematic avant la lettre--that shaped the early imagining of cinema and its French history."--Felicia McCarren, Tulane University

About the Author

Christophe Wall-Romana is Associate Professor of French at the University of Minnesota.
