"Cucinella's intense book about bodily representation provides a new way of seeing the work of Millay, Bishop, Chin, and Hacker. Its synthetic theorizations, brilliant close readings, and final dialogue with Chin bring the study of the represented female body to a new plateau. An essential book."--Steven Gould Axelrod, author of "Sylvia Plath: The Wound and the Cure of Words" and co-editor of "The New Anthology of American Poetry, Volumes 1-3" ""Poetics of the Body" offers a first-rank conversation about the cultural politics of 'the body' in recent American women's poetry. I predict that Cucinella's readings of Millay, Bishop, Chin, and Hacker will place her solidly at the forefront of a new wave of feminist scholars who write about poetry. This work is essential for anyone interested in 'the body's' often contentious relationship to gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, and class."--Camille Roman, author of "Elizabeth Bishop's World War II-Cold War View" and co-editor of "The Women & Language Debate: A Sourcebook" "Cucinella's "Poetics of the Body" is a refreshing book. By listening attentively to the distinct story of the body that each of her four poets has to tell, Cucinella offers a compelling and diverse story of American women's poetry in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. For Cucinella, a poem is not a mask for the poet to hide behind but a place to explore and perform the problems, fears, challenges, and pleasures of the body. In elegant, theoretically sophisticated readings that ground each poets' work in place, time, and experience, a unique poetics of the body comes into focus--Edna St. Vincent Millay's commodified body, Elizabeth Bishop's ambiguous body, Marilyn Chin's investigations of the body in the context of the Chinese American immigrant experience, and Marilyn Hacker's complex intertwining of body and language. It is finally, though, the exuberance Cucinella conveys, the delight she takes in poetic craft, and the careful attention she pays to a poet's body of work, that marks this book as worth reading."--Bethany Hicok, author of "Degrees of Freedom: American Women Poets and the Women's College, 1905-1955"From the Publisher:
With the exhaustion of postcolonial studies, and following the historical turn in studies of European imperialism, the time is ripe for a more sharply historical consideration of the role of European legal thought in processes of colonial governance. Rather than recycling general theories of the ideological role of law in European colonization, the contributions to this volume focus on the historical interaction between law and politics in British colonial contexts in order to clarify how European legal doctrines and institutions were actually transmitted, negotiated and modified in the concrete circumstances of frontier polities.
