Abstract:

Note: This is the paperback edition of a previously announced title.

This is the first book to focus entirely on the analysis of sign language
poetry. Richly illustrated with images taken from poetry performances, the
book draws mainly on the work of Dorothy Miles in both British and American
Sign languages, but the analytical tools developed here are also used in
examining recent work by Paul Scott and other sign language poets,
exploring the elements of text and performance that can inform and
challenge our understanding of poetry more generally. Topics covered
include the use of repetition and symmetry, the importance of visual
neologisms for aesthetic effect and the creation of metaphor and ambiguity.
With an Afterword by Paddy Ladd, the critical analysis of the poetry is set
within the framework of an appreciation of Deaf culture and Deaf communities.
