This chapter examines the issues of modernist bricolage and postcolonial hybridity in relation to poetic transnationalism. It discusses Third World poets' use of intercultural poetic forms of modernism in their quest to break through monologic lyricism, to express their cross-cultural experience, despite vast their differences in ethnicity and geography, politics and history, from the Western modernists. This also analyzes the relevant works of Lorna Goodison, Kamau Brathwaite and Agha Shahid Ali.

Keywords:   modernist bricolage, postcolonial hybridity, poetic transnationalism, Third World poets, intercultural poetic forms, modernism, monologic lyricism, Lorna Goodison, Kamau Brathwaite, Agha Shahid Ali
