The Chinese written character as a medium for poetry a critical edition by Ernest Fenollosa ( )
14 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
First published in 1919 by Ezra Pound, Ernest Fenollosa's essay on the Chinese written language has become one of the most often quoted statements in the history of American poetics. As edited by Pound, it presents a powerful conception of language that continues to shape our poetic and stylistic preferences: the idea that poems consist primarily of images; the idea that the sentence form with active verb mirrors relations of natural force. But previous editions of the essay represent Pound's understanding--it is fair to say, his appropriation--of the text. Fenollosa's manuscripts, in the Beinecke Library of Yale University, allow us to see this essay in a different light, as a document of early, sustained cultural interchange between North Americaand East Asia.Pound's editing of the essay obscured two important features, here restored to view: Fenollosa's encounter with Tendai Buddhism and Buddhist ontology, and his concern with the dimension of sound in Chinese poetry.This book is the definitive critical edition of Fenollosa's important work. After a substantial Introduction, the text as edited by Pound is presented, together with his notes and plates. At the heart of the edition is the first full publication of the essay as Fenollosa wrote it, accompanied by the many diagrams, characters, and notes Fenollosa (and Pound) scrawled on the verso pages. Pound's deletions, insertions, and alterations to Fenollosa's sometimes ornate prose are meticulously captured, enabling readers to follow the quasi-dialogue between Fenollosa and his posthumous editor. Earlier drafts and related talks reveal the developmentof Fenollosa's ideas about culture, poetry, and translation. Copious multilingual annotation is an important feature of the edition.This masterfully edited book will be an essential resource for scholars and poets and a starting point for a renewed discussion of the multiple sources of American modernist poetry

Poetics of emptiness : transformations of East Asian philosophy and poetics in twentieth-century American poetry by Jonathan Stalling ( )
2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Summary: This dissertation explores transformations of East Asian philosophy, poetics, and aesthetics in twentieth-century American poetry. Transpacific texts like those discussed in this dissertation offer an opportunity to expand literary criticism's interpretive frames by requiring reading practices as heterocultural as the texts being read. Each chapter of this dissertation addresses the unique intertextual pathway of specific East Asian configurations of "emptiness" as they are transformed by their integration into American poetics. I explore how Ernest Fenollosa integrates late Meiji Tendai Buddhist reading of emptiness ( kong ) and the classical Chinese concept ( wen , "pattern") to support his poetics of emptiness. I explore the didactic and soteriological function of the "emptiness" in Gary Snyder's poetry and poetics, as well as Wai-lim Yip's "language of emptiness" ( wuyan ) which he argues is capable of "letting the world manifest itself in poetry without 'epistemological elaborations.'" Finally, I presence the ways in which Theresa Hak Kyung Cha's novel/poem Dictee draws upon the textual tradition of Daoist ( neidan , "inner alchemy"). Tracing the impact of these transpacific concepts reveals an important untold story of American poetry and poetics, and it is my hope that this dissertation provides a small chapter in this unfolding history
