Examining the poetics of modernity in terms of the incorporation of movement and dance, this work explores how dance and literary scholarship are part of the interdisciplinary field of dance poetics. Reviewing French literature of the 19th and 20th centuries the author's notion of "kinepoetics" demonstrates how the dynamism of dance and pure movement are expressions of the literary text.
