WHAT ARE MINIMALIST POEMS
MINIMALIST
 Is loosely defined….
 Influenced by concrete poetry, Japanese haiku,
among others.
 Has specific characteristics that make it unique.
LACK OF NARRATIVE
 does not rely on story or narrative
 It is concise and eliminating any unnecessary
words.
 Minimalist poems do not seek to set scenes,
introduce characters or provide descriptions of
specific actions or events.
FOCUS ON WORDS
 A minimalist poem is focused specifically on words
or even one word.
 Ex. Poets such as Aram Saroyan and Richard
Kostelanetz wrote the first one-word poems of the
minimalist movement in the 1960s.
 Aram Saroyan's poem "lighght," consisting of only
this one word, is one of the most famous examples
of one-word minimalist poetry.
TYPOGRAPHY
 variation and visual interest in their poems by
playing with font, spaces between letters and size
of letters.
 A famous example of this is Richard Kostelanetz's
sequence "Genesis," in which each word
represents one day of creation and is characterized
by a different font type, color, and text arrangement.
SHAPE
 Minimalist poetry is about visual representation.
 One- or two-word poems don't rely simply on
meaning for effect, the shape and placement of
those words on the page can make a significant
impact.
H0pe
there it is
a part of me
some originality
i can save the world

want to
see me

its the way i feel
could it be real

in this rusty town
no one knows why

anyone
