By Jahan Ramazani

Poetry is usually seen as culturally homogeneous—“stubbornly national,” in T. S. Eliot’s word, or “the so much provincial of the arts,” in keeping with W. H. Auden. yet in A Transnational Poetics, Jahan Ramazani uncovers the ocean-straddling energies of the poetic imagination—in modernism and the Harlem Renaissance; in post–World warfare II North the United States and the North Atlantic; and in ethnic American, postcolonial, and black British writing. Cross-cultural trade and effect are, he argues, one of the leader engines of poetic improvement within the 20th and twenty-first centuries.

Reexamining the paintings of a big selection of poets, from Eliot, Yeats, and Langston Hughes to Elizabeth Bishop, Lorna Goodison, and Agha Shahid Ali, Ramazani unearths the various ways that sleek and modern poetry in English overflows nationwide borders and exceeds the scope of nationwide literary paradigms. via a number of transnational templates—globalization, migration, commute, style, impact, modernity, decolonization, and diaspora—he discovers poetic connection and discussion throughout countries or even hemispheres.

Bèze incarne, plus que jamais, los angeles judgment of right and wrong du parti huguenot français : les Eglises de France seront-elles enfin libérées de l. a. tyrannie des rois Valois ? Oui, si les coreligionnaires allemands venaient à leur secours. Mais au lieu de le faire, les Allemands se livrent à l. a. guerre théologique. A l. a. suite de l'Electeur de Saxe, on ne songe qu'à exterminer les "calvinistes" et tous ceux qui s'opposent au dogme de l'ubiquité, et l'on préfère accorder des lansquenets luthériens au roi plutôt qu'aux protestants.
