Abstract(s)
The following article is designed as an introduction to Anglophone science-fiction and fantastic poetry, particularly poetry featured over the past few decades in various genre anthologies and periodicals. It is neither a theoretical study nor an in-depth analysis of poetry; its objective is merely to introduce science-fiction and fantastic poetry as a phenomenon that addresses similar issues as science-fiction and fantastic prose. Notwithstanding, the article begins with a brief discussion of the definitions of science fiction and poetry. The second part focuses on poetry in science-fiction and fantastic prose; the third part then turns to science-fiction and fantastic poetry as such. After sketching its history and suggesting some places where to find such poetry, selected topics that science- fiction and fantastic poetry frequently addresses are introduced. Although occasionally older works are mentioned, the majority of the poems and criticism discussed in the article originate in the second half of the twentieth and the beginning of the twenty-first centuries.
