This learn lines the shaping presence of cultural interactions, arguing that American literature has turn into a hybridization of japanese and Western literary traditions. Cultural exchanges among the East and West all started within the early many years of the 19th century as American transcendentalists explored jap philosophies and humanities. Hakutani examines this impression in the course of the works of Emerson, Thoreau, and Whitman. He extra demonstrates the East-West trade via discussions of the interactions by means of modernists reminiscent of Yone Noguchi, Yeats, Pound, Camus, and Kerouac.
Finally, he argues that African American literature, represented by means of Richard Wright, Ralph Ellison, Alice Walker, Toni Morrison, and James Emanuel, is postmodern. Their works convey their concerted efforts to abolish marginality and expand referentiality, exemplifying the postmodern East-West crossroads of cultures. A fuller figuring out in their paintings is won by means of situating them inside of this cultural dialog. The writings of Wright, for instance, tackle their complete importance simply after they are learn, no longer as a part of a countrywide literature, yet as an index to an evolving literature of cultural exchanges.
