Stuart Cooke on Mapudungun Poetics at ASLEC-ANZ (Liveblog)

“What Is an Ecologically Sensitive Poetics?”

Leonel Lienlaf and Elicura Chihuailaf.

This is the indigenous language of the Mapuche (Earth) people of Chile/Argentina.
It is highly enactive.
Carefully proportioned breath.
Flows of energy that return to the potential of the virtual or of the dreaming.
Oral writing. Need to write our language back into the land (David Abram)
Kürüf: exploiting complexity of European signs

Miserable poetry << suffering country
Poet consoles himself with the presence of surrounding words
Singing in the threshold of misery
