              Bryan Walpert's fourth collection of lyric poems ranges in its focus from flowers to infinities, from laundry to eternity, but is founded most fully on what it is to move into middle age - to wait still for life's promised brass band to arrive.

              Resistance to Science in Contemporary American Poetry (Hardback)

              This book examines types of resistance in contemporary poetry to the authority of scientific knowledge, tracing the source of these resistances to both their literary precedents and the scientific zeitgeists that helped to produce them. Walpert argues that contemporary poetry off...ers a palimpsest of resistance, using as case studies the poets Alison Hawthorne Deming, Pattiann Rogers, Albert Goldbarth, and Joan Retallack to trace the recapitulation of romantic arguments (inherited from Keats, Shelly, and Coleridge, which in turn were produced in part in response to Newtonian physics), modernist arguments (inherited from Eliot and Pound, arguments influenced in part by relativity and quantum theory), and postmodernist arguments (arguments informed by post-structuralist theory, e.g. Barthes, Derrida, Foucault, with affinities to arguments for the limitations of science in the philosophy, sociology, and rhetoric of science). Some of these poems reveal the discursive ideologies of scientific languagea reveal, in other words, the performativity of scientific language. In doing so, these poems themselves can also be read as performative acts and, therefore, as forms of intervention rather than representation. Reading Retallack alongside science studies scholar Karen Barad, the book concludes by proposing that viewing knowledge as a form of intervention, rather than representation, offers a bridge between contemporary poetry and science.

              Since its inception, Viva la Novella has published surprising, original and brilliant writing from debut and emerging writers. And it's not just us saying so. In 2017 Marlee Jane Ward's novella Welcome to Orphancorp won the Victorian Premier's Young Adult Fiction Prize. In 2018 M...irandi Riwoe's The Fish Girl was shortlisted for the Stella Prize and the Queensland Prize for Fiction. Joshua Mostafa's Offshore was optioned by Australian film-marker Partho Sen-Gupta and critically acclaimed. Although these volumes are slim, they continue to demonstrate how powerful the short form can be. In 2020 we are delighted to bring you two fresh titles which will be announced on publication in September, accompanied by a publicity campaign and launch party.
