Abstract

These conversations grew out of a curiosity about the possibilities of the hybridity of the essay and from a shared interest in how the essay and essay-publishing are working in the U.K. In this Listening Tour, relative strangers utilize the opportunity of an unexpected conversation to attempt to capture the fleeting, often excessive and heightened movement of essays – considering a wide range of topics, from triptychs and pretention to Barthes and post-partum art. Here essayists, editors and publishers think out loud about form and context and try to handle this slippery, digressive, cunning, non-genre genre.
