A Transnational Poetics

Jahan Ramazani

University of Chicago Press

This chapter examines the formal, historical and disciplinary consequences of cross-national influence and interstitial migrancy for English-language poetry in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. It analyzes the methodological and political implications of reshaping a humanistic subdiscipline to reflect the intercultural energies and mobilities of cross-national literary citizenship. This chapter also discusses the role of poetic transnationalism in helping us understand a world in which cultural boundaries are permeable and read like imaginative citizens of worlds that ceaselessly overlap, intersect and converge.

Keywords:   English-language poetry, cross-national influence, interstitial migrancy, humanistic subdiscipline, literary citizenship, poetic transnationalism, cultural boundaries
