Intentist Poetry

Intentist poets are all interested in demonstrating the significance of intentions in a poem.

Intentist poets encounter unique issues.

Some Intentist fine artists have portrayed the creative trail through palimpsestism, others through anarrativism.  Neither are as easily possible with text for different reasons: A poem with different layers of text becomes primarily a piece of visual art; secondly, text, if it is to be understood at all needs to a lesser or greater degree to be narratorial.

Poems include Gideon Parry’s ‘Grind’ which leaves rejected phrases in parenthesis and Luciano Pelosi’s ‘Homeward’ which retains unnecessary parts enclosed in commas, in a similar way to non-defining relative clauses.
