Povzetek

Razprava se osredotoča na branje pesmi Susan Howe »Periscope« (2017), v kateri pesnica izpodbija vprašanja liberalnih humanističnih smeri razmišljanja o domnevno osrednjem in privilegiranem položaju človeka, hkrati pa odpira nove načine za reprezentacijo ljudi v odnosu do tistega, kar ni človeško. Študija, ki temelji na konceptih »nomadske subjektivnosti«, »upodabljanja« in »transverzalnosti« Rosi Braidotti, »teorije stvari« Billa Browna in »postčloveškega vpliva« Pietra Vermeulena, preučuje, kako pesničina preokupacija z delovanjem vsega ne-človeškega, ki je upodobljeno v pesmi, vodi v posthumanistično interpretacijo. Preučuje tudi, kako pripovedovalec prevprašuje meje med človeškim in ne-človeškim, živim in neživim, da bi priklical nenavadne učinke, ki se najbolje uresničijo v obliki postčloveškega kljubovanja liberalnim humanističnim modelom subjektivnosti. Izkaže se, da pesnica vzpostavlja sugestivno vizionarsko angažiranost ter srečanje z naravnim svetom in »antropomorfiziranimi stvarmi«, da bi prebudila zgodovinsko zavest, ki bi dala glas neartikuliranemu Drugemu.
