A. Critical and Comparative Studies
71. Kern, Robert. Orientalism, Modernism, and the American Poem. Cambridge: Cambridge UP, 1996.
Even more than Qian (A70) Kern
focuses on the role of ideas about China in his ‘critical and historical
interpretation of “oriental” influences on American modernist
poetry’, though nonetheless raises issues that apply equally well
to understanding of Japanese subjects. Focuses particularly on the work
of Fenollosa (see D10), Pound, and
Gary Snyder (see CA14e).
