The French Poetry Economy

Abstract : Contemporary French poetry is not without paradox. Marginalized but dynamic, ignored yet prestigious, it appears to function in fairly autonomous circles. Detailed observation of this world leads to an approach based on a relational perspective, with a view to understandig the strategies of actors engaged in a dense socio-economic environment, an embedded market. Poetry has established new economic structures within its relational space. These constitute a solution to its marginality within the book market and help to stabilize the economic existence of a prestigious genre that in fact gave birth to literature.
