Unpaid Annotation
Xiaojing (American studies, State U. of NY, Buffalo) studies the theoretical grounds of American poet Bishop's work. Drawing somewhat from the dialogism of Mikhail Bakhtin, but mainly from Bishop's own explanations of her artistic theories, Xiaojing argues that Bishop was more subversive of conventional literary norms than is usually recognized.
