About this title


The Postmodern Temperaments: Fifteen Poets features poems by Adam Gaucher, Alexander Shaumyan, Christine Kempster, Colette, Daniel W. Gonzales, Danielle Ackley-McPhail, Darla E. Fitzgerald, Del Senkbeil, Henry Victor, Herbert L. Burd, Janet I. Buck, John Dempsey, Kazuyosi Ikeda, Richard Conrad Henry, Serge van Duijnhoven.. Their poetry shows the impact of psychology, anthropology, metaphysics, quest for new values to guide our life in a world almost conquered by Information Technology, globalization, and terrorism. Are we facing the moral, intellectual and social crisis? ... all these contemporary poets reveal the sensibility of the post-modern era in their own individual voice and rhythm. All 15 poets seem to affirm the human values which the Machine Age threatens to destroy. The most extraordinary thing about these poets is their diversity in excellence, and their faith in "a series of luminous points" or intensities. The variety of these poems is evident, and the fifteen authors succeed in writing poems full of grace and classic charm, even without indulging in 'parodies of middle ages'. Postmodernism according to Charles Jencks is 'disruption from within, refusing to submerge difference into universalism and therefore preserving multiplicity and local cultures' (Postmodern Theory: The Current Debate, 1992, ed. Patricia Waugh). The Postmodern Temperaments features the best work of the great masters of contemporary world poetry in English. The large number of selected poems by each poet contributes to a full revelation of the characteristic quality and main theme of these remarkable authors.
