Inter/National Aesthetics

Palestinians in Native Poetry

(p.103) 4. Inter/National Aesthetics

Steven Salaita

University of Minnesota Press

The fourth chapter examines a range of Native poets to see how they invoke Palestine as a theme and symbol. Here, the author treats Palestine as an aesthetic in Native poetry, not simply a site of political, as to highlight thematic connections across a relatively wide range of work rather than identify a sort of sociopolitical phenomena. In this way, the consistent device of openendedness and ambiguity and self-reflection is that, in the hands of Native poets, Palestine always becomes Indian country.
