Editorial Board

„Forum” represents a place for public discussion, and it is time we had more dialogue on the subject of poetics in this place.

„Forum of Poetics” is a bilingual (Polish and English) philological quarterly, published in digital form and dealing with contemporary problems of poetics. The purpose of the journal is to generate systematic and multifaceted thought on the transformations of poetics that have resulted from changes in philology and the humanities. In each of the thematically organized issues of „Forum of Poetics” there will be articles grouped in regular departments. The main, theoretical department will offer general perspectives on matters of poetics today. The translation department is tasked with developing knowledge on the newest poetics concepts from abroad. An important feature called “Poetics Dictionary” contains articles relating to contemporary perspectives and utterances on problems not yet assimilated by the lexicography of the discipline. The increasingly crucial importance of practices essential to knowledge production has necessitated the creation of a department of interpretation and praxis, in which certain formulas of poetics will be printed in the course of literary analyses. Beside the necessary survey and reviews of current works of poetics broadly understood, we are proposing an additional section called “Poetics Archive,” in which poetics concepts which have been somewhat or entirely forgotten will be presented anew, since we feel it is worth testing their capacity to inspire contemporary humanities thought.
