and scholarly work on poetry and poetics of interest to the series includes social location in its relationships to subjectivity, to the construction of authorship, to oeuvres, and to careers; poetic reception and dissemination (groups, movements, formations, institutions); the intersection of poetry and theory; questions about language, poetic authority, and the goals of writing; claims in poetics, impacts of social life, and the dynamics of the poetic career as these are staged and debated by poets and inside poems More information about this series at

Appropriation in Kenneth Goldsmith, Vanessa Place, and John Seed 135 ix FORM AND THE ANTAGONISMS OF REALITY: BARRY MACSWEENEY’S SIN SIGNS 233 images of abjection (Rowe 2009: 102) In Robert Kaufman’s terms, already encountered in the  chapter “Meddling the Medieval: Caroline  Bergvall and Erín Moure”, we can say that the singing of lyric confounds the abject conceptual content, even while a poem is obliged to submit itself to be formed out of, and by, conceptual language, ‘to make thought sing and to make song think’ (Kaufman 2005: 212) Rowe is also close to the mark when he says of ‘Jury Vet’ as a whole that it engages the reader to undertake acts of forming that operate as invitations to perceive the moment of poesis (although he couches it in Deleuzoguattarian language): Its real concern is power … A reader is enmeshed in the desiring machine as it assembles itself, its glistening appurtenances of fashion become flesh: an erotic body that embodies the gaze of power—what you are looking at is yourself-in-subjection By entering right there, the poem risks losing itself in the endless proliferation of objects of desire, secret of consumerism Its tactic is to take them and write with them (Rowe 2009: 99–100) Those part-objects (often represented by part-phrases, portmanteau words, neologistic collocations or crypt words) become the text’s materials with which form may begin, from which forming may proceed MacSweeney does not criticize the avaricious greed of Thatcherism by naming its architect His poems—critical in their forms and forming— participate and criticize the materials of the social world instigated by the ogress Form operates as transfiguration and guilt: the choice of certain materials (the fashion magazines that MacSweeney literally ‘writes with’ to make novel forms) and the rejection of others (such as the abandoned titles of the sequence) are evident ‘Form inevitably limits what is formed’, as Adorno puts it (Adorno 2003: 144) One poem’s dates demonstrate larger guilt: ‘Started September 1979’, Wolf Tongue declares of ‘Jury Vet’, ‘Abandoned 1981’ (MacSweeney 2003: 131) Form may be ‘sedimented content’, as Adorno said, but it is not readable as content any longer This is not to be confused with the overt content (or paraphrasable meaning), nor with the forms and forming open to a subtle formalist reading, as identifiable elements of poetic artifice, such as the novel lineation and section divisions of ‘Jury Vet’ This sedimented content also is to be distinguished from the material or materials, MacSweeney’s fashion magazines as well as his visceral revulsion against Thatcher, for example However, MacSweeney’s ideolectic linguistic 234 R SHEPPARD inheritance, such as his Chattertonian medievalism, McClure’s ransacked centered page prosody, and the borrowings of headlines from the conventions of news (as used by MacSweeney professionally) show us a glimpse of personal sedimentation (Adorno, of course, had in mind more social contents, such as how the form of the sonnet carries with it the dialectic argumentative structure of the courtly love tradition and the witty display of the life at court, and how it carries them into present formal manifestations, as outlined in the chapter ‘Convention and Constraint: Form in the Innovative Sonnet Sequence’) A larger claim, that form is cognitive, runs throughout this study, and it must be recognized that, despite the strength of assertion in aphoristic concision in a phrase like ‘Form thinks’ and the more specific ‘Forms think’, there is a sly conjecturality about the claim (which is indeed partly its power), even when it is couched in as ponderously rehearsed an aesthetic theory as Adorno’s As with form itself, it is less a case of pointing to examples—say, to propositions that embody knowledge—than acknowledging that cognition is embedded in the sedimentation and in the critical function that is itself called into being by form (and its autonomy); this is a specific example of the more general theory of material engagement that argues for the recognition of the cognitive agency of artifacts external to the human mind The cognitive content is not a paraphrase; ‘JURY VET LOVE BULLET/IN’ cannot be reduced to a summary as a scenario involving bedroom, wedding, and vixen-haired woman, without inflicting interpretational violence (though this is inevitable to some extent, as long as one recognizes that ‘reduction’ is quite simply what it is) The thick artifice of the poem, linguistic, sonic, and visual, militates against paraphrase: naturalization is delayed under these conditions to allow the ‘knowledge’ encoded in the formal apparatus of the poem to be perceived and received In MacSweeney’s poem, each enjambment across the flow (if that is the right word for the costive heavy syllables caused by the frequent omission of articles and function words) ‘knows the society which it lives off and on which it is irreducibly dependent … by assembling and organizing materials which … contain historical experience sedimented within themselves’, to repeat a point made by Jarvis (Jarvis 1998b: 107) The mere separation of ‘sin’ from ‘sign’ in ‘sin/sign’ encodes the slippage of a single letter from the ‘singing’ of the ‘signs’ of society ‘The effect of … mobilization of meaning by formal properties’, as Attridge puts it, ‘is that the text can never close down on a represented world … outside language’ (Attridge 2004a: 118–119) Naturalization is a haunting, FORM AND THE ANTAGONISMS OF REALITY: BARRY MACSWEENEY’S SIN SIGNS 235 halting, but unavoidable, process that occurs within poetic language, and negotiates with formal artifice to release its cognitive content, as ForrestThomson argues The autonomy of art (and of any art object) facilitates all of the above, but is itself predicated on the heteronomy of the work of art: the signs of art are forever twinned with the sins of reality Its materials (rather than its content) derive from the latter, bequeathing its sedimented content as critical form to autonomy The autonomous and heteronomous interface results in artists restlessly displaying and playing with their Schilleresque formal impulse between three scenarios, as identified by Rancière: that art becomes life, that life becomes art, and that life and art exchange their properties Like the notion of cognitive form, there is a conjectural dimension to the identification of these scenarios in action They are partly derived from the intentions of artists and, while intentions are often revealing (as they appear in poetics, e.g.), they have been ruled out of formalist methodology for at least a century, from Russian Formalism and the New Criticism to Post-Structuralism and beyond Critics and theorists—in this case Rancière—work hard to establish neat unequivocal categorizations, even when they allow for the equivocal, ambiguous, ambivalent, and contradictory acts of poesis (such as the multiform diversity of MacSweeney’s oeuvre), or are open to acts of forming as form, as artistic materials develop toward making the artwork, in this case the ‘Jury Vet’ poems MacSweeney’s poems have art enough in their artifice, as I have shown; life as mediated through the smooth surfaces of fashion magazines, through both their images and the restricted code of fashion writers and pundits, is ironically only the representation of another mediation, that of raw sexuality and its collision with capitalism, but this reveals the deep structures of society, yet only reveals them (in the poem) through an artificial and critical engagement Art becoming life, as Rowe says of these poems, means ‘fashion becomes flesh’ (Rowe 2009: 99) Life becoming art, already present in the mediated world of fashion, is demonstrated in the strange way Thatcher and Deneuve merge into one another and into other characters (perhaps even into the shoulder-padded Liz Hard) Life becomes art because the opposite happens, yet the third scenario, in which they exchange their properties, which we have already seen as a trap for conceptual writing’s ambitions, is the site of the objections to abjection found in Peter Riley’s critique of MacSweeney’s work of the ‘Jury Vet’ period The confusion of, fusion of, art and life, life and art, allows the fashion model to become a presentation rather than a representation, 236 R SHEPPARD and is the most real person in the poem Abjection becomes social realism; individual fetishism becomes communal behavior That catalogues of sexual perversions and abject excess abound is evidence of art attempting to change places with life but this is resisted by the thickness of artifice, by autonomy’s tensions with the ‘sin signs’ of heteronomy, which preserves and enables the poems’ critical function The similar tension between the three scenarios identified by Rancière, the ‘undecidability’ that results, drives artistic practice, and is therefore not simply negative in that respect (Rancière 2010: 133) Dissensus (rather than consensus, both socially and artistically, in relation to heteronomy as well as autonomy) produces the manifold and broadly translational devices of formally investigative poetry (including that poetry now called linguistically innovative), but varieties of montage and de-montage emphasizing disruption, interruption, imperfect fit, and unfinish, as well as transformation and transposition—creative linkage in other words—put disorder at the heart of art’s order, while simultaneously putting order at the heart of its disruptive practices Resisting signification within signification is the formal splinter at, and in, the heart of the poem MacSweeney’s ‘Jury Vet’ is probably the most egregious example of this in his multiform body of work, where even the single device of putting some strings of words in capitals can stand for all the formidable formal operations analyzed in this chapter as repeated instances of defamiliarizing interference The critical function of art is born in the instant its form de-forms and re-forms in front of us, in our forming activities, as precisely the prefiguring of freedom that Adorno describes Political formally investigative poetry will both say and not say, modified by formal resistance and interruption, as Rancière argues If form knows—if forms know anything, they know at least to these things NOTES Sheppard 2012 re-articulates many of the terms in the first and last sections of this chapter in a ‘forming action’ that drags ideas in the wake of its forward poetic trajectory; I have called it a ‘manyfesto’ and it is dedicated to Sean Bonney Rancière realizes the subtlety of Adorno’s use of the terms when he comments: ‘The autonomy of Schönberg’s music, as conceptualised by Adorno, FORM AND THE ANTAGONISMS OF REALITY: BARRY MACSWEENEY’S SIN SIGNS 237 is a double heteronomy: in order to denounce the capitalist division of labour and the adornments of commodification, it has to take that division of labour yet further, to be still more technical, more “inhuman” than the products of capitalist mass production But this inhumanity, in turn, makes the stain of what has been repressed appear and disappear and disrupt the work’s perfect technical arrangement’ (Rancière 2010: 129) This is a complex example of the self-interrogation of art works and demonstrates how form has a vital function to play in these maneuvers or out-maneuvers The result of this, according to Bürger, is that under postmodernism, the concept of the avant-garde, strictly speaking, becomes inoperative, since any ‘advanced’ style is only a style and is available to all, on a level playing field, for purposes of pastiche and parody Guattari also uses the term to contrast ‘a stupefying and infantalizing consensus’ with ‘the singular production of existence’ from micropolitical groups operating in short-term autonomous activism (Guattari 2000: 50) I use this identification in my  chapters ‘Meddling the Medieval: Caroline Bergvall and Erín Moure’ and ‘The Making of the Book: Bill Griffiths and Allen Fisher’ William Rowe prefers the word ‘disjunction’ to ‘interruption’, explaining: ‘The act of interruption does not bring a new ground to meaning into the frame, but on the contrary allows itself eventually to be subsumed’ (Rowe 2014: 105) I read ‘rupture’ in the term, as my use here emphasizes, not intermission, as a synonym for disjunction I have used Rancière’s appeal to disordered de-montaging as part of a description of the ethics, if not the politics, of form in Tom Raworth, in  ‘Poetry and Ethics: the saying and the said’, in Sheppard 2011: 141–155 See Sheppard 2005: 68–70 for a brief account of Odes See an earlier piece that this was the basis for this, ‘Far Language’ (1981) in Sheppard 1999: 13–15 Other figures include Veronica Lake and Lady (later Princess) Diana, who is present under her press sobriquet (‘Di’) See endnote of my ‘Introduction’ In Sheppard 2005, the ‘saying’ is contrasted to the ‘said’ as a positive quality of eternal utterance as against the fixity of saidness, not in a simple and judgmental binary but in the full acknowledgment that a formally investigative poem (though I did not then use that term) would need to concretize its eternality in fixed readings Reading for form rather neatly works to allow the saying to sound eternally while any particular forming of the text for an occasion is necessarily acknowledged as a provisional realization, a product of the process, a said 238 R SHEPPARD BIBLIOGRAPHY Adorno, T.W 2002 Aesthetic Theory Eds G. Adorno and R. Tiedemann, Trans R. Hullot-Kentor London: Continuum
