Editorial Reviews

Review

<p><i>New World Poetics</i> will be viewed as a foundational work because of its many, and remarkably perceptive, links among poetry, natural history, and political history. Handley's scholarship is impressive throughout, as he explores both North American and Latin American conceptions of the New World and illuminates the origins, potential, and limitations of American Studies as a discipline. This exciting book left me especially eager to voyage further into the literature of South America for myself.</p> (John Elder author of <i>Reading the Mountains of Home</i>)

<p>Joining Whitman with Neruda and Walcott under environmentalist scrutiny gives this book new reach and point. Handley aptly clarifies the poets' take on America's so-called and half-wasted New World. Unless we credit their human imaginative presence, no amount of science or policy will pull us through.</p> (John Felstiner author of <i>Translating Neruda</i>)
