zaum language...... a musical group with a debut release "electrolite gelcaps".


I still don't really know what zaum is. "Language experiments?" What was the nature of these experiments? What was he doing? I get that he was going beyond sense and rationality etc., but how? How did these experiments differ from poetry, if at all? Could you include a sample text? This is an intriguing beginning to what sounds like it could be an interesting subject...but I think much more elaboration is needed--as it is, this is kind of a tease. ;)

Linguistically a parallel may be drawn with Finnegans Wake, though zaum poetry was more radical in approach and spontaneous in nature. --Ghirla | talk 16:02, 8 February 2006 (UTC)

the use of the sound, rhythm, shape of words rather than the meaning- a bit like onomatipea. so a poem might include neologisms ('kissel' for example) and not form logical sentances or associations.

i think joyce was using similar transport to move in the opposite direction (t/w the specific rather then the unversal).

Article Needs[edit]

I’ve added citations for this article where formerly missing. The article could be improved considerably by further examination of the critical and poetic contributions of Khlebnikov as well as by addition of material on Ilya Zdanevich’s innovations in typography. Solid references are available in the two books by Janecek already cited here and in Johanna Drucker’s essay, “Zdanevich: Inachievable Essentialism and Zaum Typography,” in her study The Visible Word.Tristan noir (talk) 21:23, 24 November 2012 (UTC)
