    Abstract

    This paper was delivered to the conference 'The Critic as Artist, The Artist as Critic' at Lancaster University in June 2009. It performs a critical reading of a paper given by US Language Poet Barrett Watten at the Poetry and Public Language conference at the University of Plymouth in 2007 on the relationship between a creative writer's creative and critical writing. Via Robert Sheppard's work the paper introduces the term of 'poetics' into the discussion and then models some of the implications by examples from the author's work across poetry, poetics and criticism.
