American Diaspora: Poetry of Displacement

by

American Diaspora: Poetry of Displacement Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Diaspora constitutes a powerful descriptor for the modern condition of the contemporary poet, the spokesperson for the psyche of America. The poems in American Diaspora: Poetry of Displacement focus on the struggles and pleasures of creating a home — physical and mental — out of displacement, exile, migration, and alienation.<P>To fully explore the concept of diaspora, the editors have broadened the scope of their definition to include not only the physical act of moving and immigration but also the spiritual and emotional dislocations that can occur — as for Emily Dickinson and other poets — even in a life spent entirely in one location.<P>More than one hundred and thirty contemporary poets reflect and meditate, rage and bless, as they tell their own stories. In short, this is an anthology of American poetry that draws upon the sensitivity, tenderness, rebelliousness, patience, and spirituality that point to the future of our nation.
