Described by Emma Goldman as the “greatest American anarchist,” Thoreau functions to remind us of the belief in anarchy as “the spirit of revolt, in whatever form, against everything that hinders human growth. ” Although Howe can look as if she is flirting with a politically diffident form of transcendence in this writing, the collection is actually seeking a point where “there is a sudden change to something completely else. It’s a chaotic point. It’s the point chaos enters cosmos, the instant articulation.
Reading these two poets against one another both completes and complicates my analysis of what lies on the inside and the outside of American notions of the democratic public and suggests quite a different model for understanding the histories of the relationship between contemporary women’s poetry and democracy. Although Howe shares Jordan’s equivocation toward attributing an explicit political efficacy to her own subject positioning, she articulates this hesitancy in very different ways. ”90 Like Jordan, Howe’s concern with examining the instabilities of cultural boundaries as sites of discursive and material power insists upon a range of significatory practices.
A poetic correlation of this demand is suggested in Hunt’s collection Arcade, collaboratively made with artist Alison Saar. The poem “the voice of no” offers a reading of the claustrophobic impoverishment of social routine—“No need to be contrary, I put on a face. 118 These visual texts, as they shift and recombine images of fertility and of bondage, give the frustrations of the poem a racially specific allusive context. The poem’s images and text are concerned with analyzing and escaping a routinization bound by the alienated relations of work and class as they intersect with the specific economies of gender and race.
