Apparitions of Asia

This chapter examines the legacy of high modernism in the work of avant‐garde Asian American artists at the end of the 20th century. Returning to a history of transpacific alliances in their work, Theresa Hak Kyung Cha and Myung Mi Kim explore the costs of such ties in formal terms by newly invoking modernist forms. This chapter argues that their experimental poetry dissects modernist aesthetics in order to interrogate U.S.‐East Asian alliances.

Keywords:   Theresa Hak Kyung Cha, Dictee, Myung Mi Kim, avant‐garde poetry, Korean American literature
