Poetics of Dislocation sets the work of contemporary American
poetry within the streams of migration that have made the nation
what it is in the 21st century. There are few poets better
qualified to muse on that context than Meena Alexander, who spent
her life studying at prestigious institutions around the globe
before settling in the United States to work on her acclaimed body
of poetry. Part of the University of Michigan Press' award-winning
""Poets on Poetry"" series, ""Poetics of Dislocation"" studies not
only the personal creative process Alexander uses, but also the
work of other prominent writers. Alexander discusses what it means
to come to America as an adult to write poetry, and her place - and
that of others - in the collection of cultures that makes up this
country. She outlines the dilemmas that face modern immigrant
poets, including how to make a place for oneself in a new society
and how to write poetry in a time of violence worldwide.
