Geographical Encounters, Modernist Geopoetics

The Geopoetics of Modernism

Rebecca Walsh

University Press of Florida

This chapter makes the case for the interplay between modernist poetry and academic and popular geography from the late nineteenth century to the early 1940s. It develops the term geopoetics to capture the transnational geographical orientation of the work by American poets the book considers and to reflect the geopolitical dimensions of modernist poetry’s “mixing up” of conventional global geography. It also argues for a more prominent place for the genre of poetry in discussions of transnationalism.

Keywords:   transnationalism, modernism, cultural studies, interdisciplinary, geopoetics, geopolitics, imperialism, space/place, environmental determinism, James Joyce, Ellen Churchill Semple
