Reviews

"Professor Hakutani's East-West Literary Imagination represents a significant intervention in recent critical discussions placing American and African American literature in global, comparative, transnational, and transpacific contexts."--Anita Patterson, Professor of English, Boston University, author of Race, American Literature and Transnational Modernisms


"What we have not had in a useful and thorough form is a book like the one Hakutani has produced, a book carefully exploring the intellectual traffic between Asian and American authors on a larger scale across a significant period of history."--Aldon Lynn Nielsen, Professor of American Literature, Pennsylvania State University; author of "Black Chant" Languages of African American Postmodernism
"This excellent study is not the first to deal with Eastern influences on Western literature and thinking, but it is a most timely offering--thorough in its research and clear in its presentation. Highly recommended."--Choice
"An inherently thoughtful, insightful, exceptionally well written, organized and presented work of original and seminal scholarship."--Midwest Book Review
