Part of the Springer Proceedings in Complexity book series (SPCOM)


Poetry can reproduce, amplify, and complicate everything. Poetry is an interface that links the poet and the other, arising from connotations of complexity. Temporal distances may not create any problems in poetry. A complex landscape painting can form with integrity, which happens in poetry, too. When the poet tries to create a unique world in poetry, he suffocates himself—and suffocates poetry as well. For this reason, complexity in poetry can become incomprehensible. Complexity in poetry is discussed in this chapter.
