The Book of Hours and Constellations



Best known as a founder of concrete poetry, Eugen Gomringer concentrates the visual element of his poems in geometrical structures. In his own words, Gomringer has noted, “Of all poetic structures based upon the word, the constellation is the simplest. It disposes of its groups of words as if they were clusters of stars. The constellation is a system, it is also a playground with definite boundaries. The poet sets it all up. He designs the play-ground as a field of force and suggests its possible workings. The reader accepts it in the spirit of play, then plays with it.”
