Voici l'abstract de la conférence :


Truth in Poetry - a Matter of Detail


The lecture explores the idea of “truth” in poetry, arguing that it is unlike the propositional truth defined by philosophy (“corresponding to the facts”), nor quite the same as “truth” sought in novels, as exhibited through the actions and attitudes of characters. To the extent that it is even helpful to speak of “truth” in relation to poetry—and perhaps we should be wary of that—it is to be found deep within poetic expression itself. Poetic detail, precision, and clarity of thought are at the heart of what matters in poetry and the profundity that poems sometimes attain is rarely the profundity of philosophy or science so much as a kind of integrity and authority that seems to lie in just this mode of expression. Where “falsehood” is ascribed to poetry it resides in faults like insincerity or sentimentality or cliché where ideas lack authority, being poorly thought out, glib, second-hand or imprecise.
