Editorial Reviews


“With utmost sophistication, Ryan explores the contextual dynamics of contemporary African-American feminist poetry. Using the work of five post-jazz women poets as the material for analysis, she identifies varied ideological underpinnings of artistic practices.  She maps out inter-medial and inter-discursive spaces where the poetic engages with the performative, the bodily, the social, and the economic. With its argument built around the most aesthetically productive and politically provoking categories, Post-Jazz Poetics is a major voice in the debate on the present state of African-American letters.”—Marek Paryz, Assistant Professor, Institute of English Studies, University of Warsaw and editor of the Polish Journal for American Studies

Post-Jazz Poetics articulates a discernable, significant, ongoing jazz poetic in the work of five black women poets, a body of work and a group of poets virtually ignored (to date) as a force in literary criticism. Moreover, Ryan does it without formula or reductive analysis. Each author’s individual genealogy is respected and, indeed, shown as essential to understanding their particular work in jazz poetry.”—Malin Pereira, Professor of English, University of North Carolina at Charlotte and author of Rita Dove’s Cosmopolitanism
