Antisymmetrical Palindromes in Traditional European and Contemporary Russian Poetry. Palindrome Semiotics. A Chronotope of Revolution: The Palindrome from the Perspective of Cultural Semiotics By Erika Greber (Univ. of Munich / UC Irvine) In the following abstract, I propose to analyze the palindrome in terms of cultural semiotics and to explore the subliminal semantic concepts and metaphorological implications which are involved in the genre's postmodern renaissance and which articulate certain political anxieties (something which applies especially to the recent rise of palindrome writing and criticism in Russian, German and Serbo-Croatian literatures).

New Zealand poet Doc Drumheller’s new book, the trickily titled 10 × (10 + −10) = 0, is part conceptual mindbender, part highly-charged political rant. It is often the case that conceptual poetry is not meant to be read, and that political poetry barely needs to be read, but Drumheller has created something that is worth trying to read. But it is not easy. The book takes some explaining. 10 × (10 + −10) = 0 comprises ten individual volumes, some published separately, written over ten years.
