Summary:
'Apparitions of Asia' traces a literary intimacy between the US and East Asia that spans the 20th century. Commercial and political bridges generated transpacific literary alliances, and Park analyses American bards who capitalised on these ties and interrogates the price of such intimacies in the work of Asian American poets.
