Abstract:

Wittgenstein wrote that "philosophy ought really to be written only as a form of poetry." Kristen Case's book argues that American poets from Emerson to Susan Howe have responded to the central problems of Western philosophy by enacting, in language, the continually shifting relation between mind and world that pragmatism announces. Case presents a new picture of twentieth-century American poetry that disrupts our sense of the schools and lineages of modern and postmodern poetics, arguing that literary history is most accurately figured as a living field rather than a line.
