A Transnational Poetics

Jahan Ramazani

University of Chicago Press

This chapter examines how postcolonial poetry responds to the technology, alienation and other features of global modernity. It compares this response to those of the more canonically modernist poetries of the Euro-American metropole and of the Harlem Renaissance. This chapter describes the shared alienation and mutually ambivalent response to the shock and creative potential of modernity on the part of canonical modernists by both the Harlem Renaissance and postcolonial poets.

Keywords:   postcolonial poetry, global modernity, Euro-American metropole, Harlem Renaissance, technology, alienation
