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).
