Marianne Moore & China: Orientalism & a Writing of America
Cynthia Stamy (au). Marianne Moore’s poetry offers an extraordinarily rich site from which to analyze a tradition of American orientalism which focused upon China. This volume examines why she chose to participate in that tradition & analyzes why her borrowing of Chinese models of all kinds -- from poetry to painting & philosophy -- was so critical to the formation of her verse. Moore’s poetry is part of a long tradition of satirical critique in orientalist writing which finds its roots in English literature. In the early 20th century, American poets borrowed Far Eastern poetic models to permanently transform the ways in which poetry in English was being written by launching a literary assault upon what they saw as outmoded methods of versification.
