Summary
"Marianne Moore's poetry offers a rich site from which to analyse a tradition of American orientalism which focused upon China. Marianne Moore and China examines why she chose to participate in that tradition and analyses why her borrowing of Chinese models of all kinds - from poetry to painting and philosophy - was so critical to the formation of her verse. Marianne Moore and China also examines the ways in which Chinese linguistic features provide Moore with models for her compound nouns and syntactical ellipses, and gathers evidence to show that her abiding concerns for precision, brevity and restraint have both Confucian and Puritan antecedents. Additionally, this book analyses the degree to which her collection of quotations, from which she fashions so many of her poems, and her citation of them in numerous appended notes, are complicit in the same process of acquisition and display which characterizes the activity of the museum, the preoccupations of the curio-collector, and the pursuit of minute detail in orientalist discourse generally."--BOOK JACKET
