Broken English/Breaking English: A Study of Contemporary Poetries in English

Synopsis

Jackaman (English, U. of Canterbury, New Zealand) examines the work of a number of contemporary poets writing in English. Centering around the theme of "breaking" English, the study looks at how formerly marginalized forms of the language have challenged the idea of a single, uniform, "pure" English. Examples are drawn from a number of sources, including women's poetry, West Indian-British poetry, Australian poetry, and the work of rural English poets.
