Beschreibung

The Feminist Avant-Garde in American Poetry offers a historical and theoretical account of avant-garde women poets in America from the 1910s through the 1990s. Elisabeth Frost focuses on a diverse group of poets--Gertrude Stein, Mina Loy, Sonia Sanchez, Susan Howe, and Harryette Mullen--who make language the site of feminist politics. Her study captures the range of aesthetics and politics in the work of avant-garde women poets; challenges the ways in which avant-garde writing has been defined and categorized; expands traditional conceptions of feminism and feminist poetics; and addresses issues of gender and race, allowing for discussion of a rich range of feminist and linguistic concerns.

Portrait

Elisabeth Frost is an associate professor of English at Fordham University.
