"Der er så mange følelser der søger asyl i min krop": Om affekt og politik i Lars Skinnebachs poesi

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review

The poetry of Danish poet Lars Skinnebach is characterized by the way it speaks to the addressee in a basic yet brutal way. His poems are at the same time affected and affecting anyone who reads them, they are in other words moved and moving. Nowhere more than in his seminal work I morgen findes systemerne igen (2004) does this get crystallized and radicalized, which is why I take this particular work as my point of departure in the present article. Drawing on recent affect theory, my central hypothesis is that the political dimensions of Skinnebach’s poetry come into view in the conjuncture of affect and poetic address.
