Rasula, Jed, McCaffery, Steve


"McCaffery and Rasula's anthology is unique...in that it not only extends the period of 'modernist innovation' to well before the 19th century--indeed, there is material in this volume from well before the printing press, and extending into Islamic cultures--thereby challenging the idea of modernism itself, but it is an exquisite critical effort as well, punctuated as it is by informative, encyclopedic essays and introductions....It is as if the tiled floor that experimental formalism had conceived as cutting us off from the past had been revealed to be an illusion, or at least made of glass. Reading it, one accepts the fact that language, even when it foregrounds its surface qualities to the detriment of linear meanings, has a pedigree, even if it's one that's eccentric or fractured.Rasula, Jed is the author of 'Imagining Language An Anthology', published 2001 under ISBN 9780262681315 and ISBN 0262681315.
