Transpacific and Asian American Counterpoetics

Research output: Book Chapters | Papers in Conference ProceedingsBook ChapterResearchpeer-review


In my earlier work, Transpacific Imaginations: History, Literature, Counterpoetics, I define counterpostics as "poetic resistance to imperial, national, and other forms of homogeneous narrative" (Huang 2008, 9). In the context of the transpacific, poetic imagination "departs from its Romanticist, transcendentalist origin and spreads new roots in 'articulation' as a situated and contested social imaginary" (ibid.) In the current essay, I continue this line of thinking while trying to delineate a brief history of Asian American poetry.
