Why is our international nonetheless understood via binary oppositions—East and West, neighborhood and international, universal and strange—that should have crumbled with the Berlin Wall? What may literary responses to the occasions that ushered in our period of globalization let us know in regards to the rhetorical and old underpinnings of those dichotomies?

In a typical Strangeness, Jacob Edmond exemplifies a brand new, multilingual and multilateral method of literary and cultural experiences. He starts off with the doorway of China into multinational capitalism and the looks of the Parisian flâneur within the writings of a chinese language poet exiled in Auckland, New Zealand. relocating between poetic examples in Russian, chinese language, and English, he then lines a chain of encounters formed by way of financial and geopolitical occasions from the Cultural Revolution, perestroika, and the June four bloodbath to the cave in of the Soviet Union, September eleven, and the invasion of Iraq. In those encounters, Edmond tracks a shared predicament with strangeness wherein poets contested previous binary oppositions as they reemerged in new, post-Cold battle forms.
