Mediating the Concrete: Hansjörg Mayer as a Poet of Transition.

Bronac Ferran's enquiry addresses the contribution made by Hansjörg Mayer, a poet, editor, printer and typographer, to the post-war international concrete poetry movement, through his own poems and works published through Mayer's small-press imprint, 'edition hansjörg mayer'. It offers the first contextualisation of Mayer's substantial corpus of the nineteen sixties, situating him as a poet of transition, whose works provide a lens into critical shifts between material and informational tendencies in post-war poetics.

Supervisors: Professor Martin Eve, Dr Steve Willey and Professor Roger Luckhurst.
