Kristen Case's e-book argues that American poets from Emerson to Susan Howe have replied to the primary difficulties of Western philosophy by means of acting, in language, the consistently transferring relation among brain and global. Pragmatism, spotting the futility of philosophy's try to repair the mind/world relation, declares the insights that those poets enact.
Pursuing the flights of pragmatist pondering into poetry and poetics, Case lines an epistemology that emerges from American writing, together with that of Emerson, Marianne Moore, William James, and Charles Olson. the following brain and global are understood as inseparable, and the person is considered, in Thoreau's phrases, "part and parcel of Nature." Case offers a brand new photo of twentieth-century American poetry that disrupts our experience of the colleges and lineages of recent and postmodern poetics, arguing that literary background is such a lot competently figured as a dwelling box instead of a line. This publication can be of specific curiosity to students and scholars of pragmatism, transcendentalism, and twentieth-century American poetry.
