A transnational poetics by Jahan Ramazani( Book )

14 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Poetry and its others : news, prayer, song, and the dialogue of genres by Jahan Ramazani( Book )

15 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is poetry? Often it is understood as a largely self-enclosed verbal system-"suspended from any mutual interaction with alien discourse," in the words of Mikhail Bakhtin. But in Poetry and Its Others, Jahan Ramazani reveals modern and contemporary poetry's animated dialogue with other genres and discourses. Poetry generates rich new possibilities, he argues, by absorbing and contending with its near verbal relatives. Exploring poetry's vibrant exchanges with other forms of writing, Ramazani shows how poetry assimilates features of prose fiction but differentiates its
The Cambridge companion to postcolonial poetry( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Cambridge Companion to Postcolonial Poetry is the first collection of essays to explore postcolonial poetry through regional, historical, political, formal, textual, gender, and comparative approaches. The essays encompass a broad range of English-speakers from the Caribbean, Africa, South Asia, and the Pacific Islands; the former settler colonies, such as Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, especially non-Europeans; Ireland, Britain's oldest colony; and postcolonial Britain itself, particularly black and Asian immigrants and their descendants. The comparative essays analyze poetry from across the postcolonial anglophone world in relation to postcolonialism and modernism, fixed and free forms, experimentation, oral performance and creole languages, protest poetry, the poetic mapping of urban and rural spaces, poetic embodiments of sexuality and gender, poetry and publishing history, and poetry's response to, and reimagining of, globalization. Strengthening the place of poetry in postcolonial studies, this Companion also contributes to the globalization of poetry studies"--
