Abstract

The contemporary canon of utopian writing includes primarily philosophical works and narrative prose; nevertheless, utopias have appeared in the form of poetry as well. The article begins by sketching the relationship of utopia and poetry. Subsequently, it focuses on two poems with a utopian vision at their center – Jorie Graham ’ s “The Guardian Angel of the Little Utopia” (1997) and Elizabeth Bishop ’ s “Santarém” (1978) – with regard to the particular locations of utopia in these poems. Although these poems cannot be considered representative – as the article highlights in the conclusion by drawing attention to Nikki Giovanni and Charles Bernstein – they suggest a variety of utopian locations in poetry. Hledání utopie v poezii Současný kánon utopické literatury zahrnuje zejména díla teoretická a prozaická, ale existují i utopie ve formě poezie. Po krátkém nastínění vztahu utopie a poezie se tento článek věnuje dvěma básním, které představují utopickou vizi: „Strážný anděl malé utopie“ („The Guardian Angel of the Little Utopia“, 1997) od Jorie Grahamové a „Santarém“ („Santarém“, 1978) od Elizabeth Bishopové. Důraz je kladen na umístění utopie ve zmíněných básních. Kromě těchto dvou děl článek zmiňuje i jiné básně, které je možné interpretovat v kontextu utopické literatury, např. sbírku Honba za utopií (Chasing Utopia, 2013) básnířky Nikki Giovanniové a „V utopii“ („In Utopia“, 2012) od Charlese Bernsteina.
