Sometimes the way these later female poets engage and converse with what might be called their founding mother is there on the surface of the poem. It is there, for instance, in the intense self-consciousness, the need to exist in and by expression, to live via language, that Adrienne Rich gives voice to in much of her writing. ”55 For that matter, it is there in the broader cultural and political brushstrokes favored by Giovanni. “I wish I knew how it would feel / to be free,” Giovanni confesses in a poem that is about being African American and, equally, being a woman.
One reason why questions about the distinctiveness of American literature, about how to write an American poem or create an American epic, began to be asked in the early nineteenth century was precisely thanks to a debt to Europe, and in particular European Romanticism. ” But such questions seemed pressing, seminal for people like Emerson and Whitman because they had learned about the notions of national character and national culture from British and German writers: “the spirit of the nation,” “the folk,” the idea of a national narrative, songs and stories that could express and embody the culture of a nation – all these were part of the currency of European Romanticism, which Americans willingly adopted as their own.
But it is also characteristic, or rather symptomatic, of the American tradition of the new, finely poised between continuity and change: an acknowledgment of the inevitable links between poets of different generations and recognition of the equally inevitable need to (as Pound himself famously put it) make it new. In telling the tale of American poetry, there is a similar obligation on the narrator of that tale to trace connection and disruption: to catch the echoes and conversations, the intimacies of word and gesture that connect one poet with others and to measure how that same poet struggles nevertheless to forge what Williams called a new mind and a new line.
