As the world becomes increasingly globalized, the integration of cultures within nations has become more and more relevant. Read takes a poetic approach to the concept of cultural conflict within nations and adds a new perspective that has rarely been seen in debate.

Reviews

"Read's Modern Poetics and Hemispheric American Cultural Studies accomplishes two interdependent aims. The book provides a theoretically informed rationale for the recent ‘hemispheric turn’ in American Cultural Studies. It also explains the crucial role that the poetics of translation has played in the emergence of the new field of Hemispheric American Cultural Studies." - Donald E. Pease, Jr., Professor of English and Avalon Foundation Chair of the Humanities, Dartmouth College
