Congratulations to Professor Mark Bender (The Ohio State University) on the great review of his book, The Borderlands of Asia: Culture, Place, Poetry.
Mekong Review commends the book because “this is an anthology designed to get the poetry out there in an accessible and engagingly informative format.”
The review notes that The Borderlands of Asia is “also a pragmatic handbook. The introduction lays out a heuristic framework for Bender’s reading of the texts that form the bulk of the book. … A substantial bibliography makes it clear that Bender isn’t just pursuing a line of his own, but rather is crystallising a particular geographical instance — the ‘borderlands’ — of a larger and growing body of academic interest, the role of poetry in its ethnographic and ecological context.”
This book is in the Cambria Sinophone World Series headed by Victor H. Mair (University of Pennsylvania).
