EOAGH: A Journal of the Arts

EOAGH: A Journal of the Arts is concerned with reading as a process, the productive chaos of investigative poetic work. These acts of attention explore the close listening inherent not just in writing but also in being written. Inspired by Whitman's assertion that "Reading is a gymnast's act," we see readings as embodied, interdisciplinary responses that engage with one's environment through ekphrasis, phenomenology, queering, conceptual multiplicity, density and difficulty.

Lexicon Polaroid

Lexicon Polaroid sews visual art & poetry together by the threads of personal interpretation. Mutability of language versus the comprehension readers, a cross between diction and depiction. We publish poems alongside their visual interpretations. The poets don’t know the artists who interpret their poems, artists don’t even know the names of the poets. The poem becomes fodder for visual creation. Some interpretations stray far from the intention of the poem, some illustrations stay true. LP is an experiment with elliptical tendencies of poetry and the art that it can inspire.
