By Amy Moorman Robbins

 American Hybrid Poetics explores the ways that hybrid poetics—a playful blending of disparate formal and aesthetic strategies—have been the driver within the paintings of a traditionally and culturally assorted crew of ladies poets who're a part of a powerful culture in contesting the dominant cultural order.  Amy Moorman Robbins examines the ways that 5 poets—Gertrude Stein, Laura Mullen, Alice Notley, Harryette Mullen, and Claudia Rankine—use hybridity as an implicitly political technique to interrupt mainstream American language, literary genres, and visible tradition, and divulge the ways that mass tradition within the 20th and twenty-first centuries has had a powerfully standardizing influence at the collective American mind's eye. via forcing encounters among incompatible traditions—consumer tradition with the avant-garde, low tradition kinds with experimental poetics, prose poetry with linguistic subversiveness—these poets compile greatly competing ideologies and spotlight their implications for lived event. Robbins argues that it truly is accurately simply because those poets have combined kinds that their paintings has long past principally neglected by means of major individuals and critics in experimental poetry circles.
