A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

This book follows the careers of three major poets of the European and North American periphery as they engage one of the master tropes of Western civilization. As colonial subjects, they inherited an Anglicized version of Hellenism whose borders might easily have excluded them as civilizational 'others.' The book describes the diverse strategies they used — from Bloomian kenosis to Afro-Caribbean 'signifyin(g)' — to make Hellenism their own. Their use of Greek material, the book argues, is closely tied to their need as members of colonial minorities — Irish Protestant, Greek-Egyptian, and 'part-white and Methodist' — to define themselves against mainstream metropolitan culture on the one hand, and nationalist constructions of the post-colonial homeland on the other. Their Hellenisms participate in the dialectic of local and global, as the poets at once indigenize the Universal Greek, and re-deploy him to hybridize national culture. The result is a triangulated dynamic that challenges established notions of the post-colonial. Among works discussed are Tennyson's "Ulysses," Yeats's "No Second Troy," C.P. Cavafy's "Waiting for the Barbarians," and Walcott's "Omeros."
