Abstract:

"Cognitive Poetic Readings in Elizabeth Bishop" is the first full-length
cognitive poetic study of a single author and her composition process. It
turns to cognitive linguistics in interpreting the poet's alternate
construals - poetic conceptualizations recorded in manuscript material. The
book demonstrates how our awareness of such universal structures of
invention as categorization, image schemas, metaphor, conceptual
integration, metonymy, idealized cognitive models, licensing stories
(presented in Part One) can assist us in deducing the original movement of
writing during genetic analysis or in arriving at a reading of the poem's
published version.

Within the framework of cognitive poetics, grounded as it is in a
systematic study of the human mind, we can appreciate the American poet's
conceptual universe structured by the pattern MENTAL LIFE/POETIC CREATIVITY
IS AN EXPLORATION OF A VISUAL FIELD. This pattern embraces, as well as
influences, Bishop's elaborating and questioning of the conventional
metaphor MIND IS A BODY MOVING IN SPACE, which lies at the centre of her
poetics. Her career-long commitment to dramatize the mind in action - "to
portray, not a thought, but a mind thinking" - is sampled and examined in
Part Two, which conducts detailed analyses of eight poems, including
drafts, typescripts, notes, journal entries, sketches, letters: Elizabeth
Bishop's avant-textes. Here the genetic search for the cognizing mind
engaged in composition complements the cognitive research into meaning
construction, and, conversely, cognitive poetics assists genetic criticism
in portraying a mind thinking in the process of writing.

"Cognitive Poetic Readings in Elizabeth Bishop" portrays also a mind
reading, as it investigates Bishop scholarship to show how cognitive
poetics can justify the critical intuitions of Bishop scholars and guide us
in our search for a reading.
