MEDIA REVIEWS
... sheds light on poetry written from both sides of the political spectrum and shows the influence of imperialist discourses in both cases. The book challenges us to reread antiwar poetry as, in fact, conventional. In addition, Chattarji's argument provides a fascinating opportunity to compare little-read prowar veteran poetry with antiwar poetry, which has enjoyed more critical acclaim. This refreshing, updated, and unflinching look at imperialist narratives that provide foundations for rethinking and reacting to political and historical tragedy is perhaps the book's greatest contribution. * American Literature *
Chattarji's book will be of great value to those interested in Vietnam poetry, as well as scholars interested in the cultural discourses of imperialism. * American Literature *
