Calque Ideas provides an opportunity for writers to think aloud, using their own experiences and knowledge to approach topics in an accessible and attractive way.
Jon Stone sets about to try to get us to do things with poems, rather than further the widespread idea that a poem is a statement—heart-rending, striking, overwhelming—of something relatable made by a particular individual. In a refreshing turn to the idea of poem as object, Stone argues that if we can only start thinking of a poem as something to play with, a device which holds no single meaning, but which instead is activated by our engagement with it, then many of the entrenched positions readers and practitioners espouse will be shown for the coercive expressions they are.
