Poetry and Spoken Work in Policy Debate as Transformative, Performative, and Critical Tools

Three solutions to your challenge:

1. Here’s that Leland from the TOC

2. Bleiker is the evidence that poetry “solves.”
Popular Dissent, Human Agency and Global Politics (Cambridge Studies in International Relations)

Its expensive new ($65 or so)…but pretty cheap used at around 6 bucks for the book on Amazon and probably about 4 bucks for shipping & handling.

You should be able to find it in most performance files. I know he also has an article or two in Alternatives magazine. Don’t know how much that Alternatives article has.

3. Article which contrasts Plato & Western truth and contrasts it with

Heideggers “The Nature of Language” apparently has some discussion of poetry.

Plus, you can win that the poetry debate is a draw…..and still K their disads (threat construction or some K of reps).

Even if you don’t end up running the Heidegger cards…its an interesting way to approach the topic.
