(p.3) Introduction
Apparitions of Asia

Josephine Nock-Hee Park

Oxford University Press

The introduction reads figures of transpacific alliance in the Orientalist verse of Walt Whitman and Ernest Fenollosa. Their grand visions of a union between East and West installed a poetics of transpacific accord and fueled modernist innovation. Against this backdrop, the introduction considers the rise of Asian America and sketches a genealogy of theorizing Asian American literature which grapples with a legacy of resistance to an Orientalist past.

Keywords:   Walt Whitman, Ernest Fenollosa, Gilded Age, Asian American movement
