Pilgrimage to Nowhere: The Spiraling Mysticism of Fanny Howe
Kanai, Steven Langston
Fanny Howe is one of America's most thought provoking poets, and her "experimental" style often draws comparisons to the avante-garde L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E poets. This study hopes to dislodge this affiliation by illustrating Howe's affinities to writings in the Christian mystical tradition. To do this, elements of Howe's writing are laid next to Michel de Certeau's Mystic Fable, as well as Jacques Derrida's On the Name. Through close reading and critical analysis, I conclude that Fanny Howe is in fact a modern day mystic writer par excellence.
