"Why did American poems, a hundred years ago, seem so important to people who wanted to halt the trade in feathers and preserve American birds? Why, from time to time, do Americans want to read poems by very young children? What does the poetry of Sylvia Plath have to do with popular ideas about electricity? How do poets turn apparent nonsense into aggressive political signs? Poetry after Cultural Studies will answer those questions and others; it should become an important part of debates about what poets do, what their poems are good for."—Stephen Burt, author, Close Calls with Nonsense: Reading New Poetry?
