 American Hybrid Poetics explores the ways that hybrid poetics—a playful blending of disparate formal and aesthetic strategies—have been the motive force within the paintings of a traditionally and culturally assorted workforce of girls poets who're a part of a powerful culture in contesting the dominant cultural order.  Amy Moorman Robbins examines the ways that 5 poets—Gertrude Stein, Laura Mullen, Alice Notley, Harryette Mullen, and Claudia Rankine—use hybridity as an implicitly political technique to interrupt mainstream American language, literary genres, and visible tradition, and disclose the ways that mass tradition within the 20th and twenty-first centuries has had a powerfully standardizing influence at the collective American mind's eye. by way of forcing encounters among incompatible traditions—consumer tradition with the avant-garde, low tradition types with experimental poetics, prose poetry with linguistic subversiveness—these poets compile extensively competing ideologies and spotlight their implications for lived adventure. Robbins argues that it's accurately simply because those poets have combined types that their paintings has long gone mostly ignored by way of major individuals and critics in experimental poetry circles.
