The panel explores the ways that androcentric traditions of literary criticism have limited our understanding of nineteenth-century poetic experimentation with categories of body, form, and environment. Panelists investigate how nineteenth-century poets identified by their experimental poetics located authorial sovereignty at an indeterminate juncture between the human and the nonhuman.
