Abstract

This chapter offers an extensive genealogy of the use of found texts (ready-made forms, collage/montage, détournement, etc.) within French poetry from Dada to Situationism. It then goes on to examine how contemporary poets have extended this practice to different types of documents in order to create works of poetry. The chapter shows how, unlike traditional poetic approaches that remain silent on their own methods and conditions of production, contemporary poetics pays close attention to the materiality, indexicality and scriptural economy of these documents.
