Product Overview

The last hundred years have been an era of unprecedented displacements: the accelerated drift of rural populations to the metropolis, the spread of these cities into successive empires, and the resulting diasporas that have forged the modern United States and any number of smaller nations. These processes have fostered a poetry of exile and expatriation intimately bound up with the experience and culture of modernity. "Poetry and Displacement" is a thought-provoking and challenging examination of globalized displacement in the work of some of our most critically-acclaimed poets, including Christopher Middleton, Philip Larkin, and Derek Walcott.
