From Good Neighbors to Countercultures

Harris Feinsod

Modernist Literature and Culture

  • Compares and connects works by a wide array of canonical and non-canonical poets from the US, the Caribbean and Latin America who sought to write a transnational "poetry of the Americas"
  • Theorizes new forms and concepts for the fields of comparative poetics and hemispheric literary history, including the poetics of diplomacy, the symbolic use of foreign words, the genre of the meditation on ruins, and cosmopolitan strategies of collaborative authorship
  • Uses archival sources to bring to light new details on relations between major poets such as Williams, Ginsberg, Neruda, Bishop, and de Burgos, and lesser-known poets such as Carrera Andrade, Kemp, Blackburn, and Randall
