Descri鈬o

This investigation deals with a discussion of contemporary conflicts, mainly armed, but also silent ones, like racism, in the contemporary poetry of two black women writers: Caribbean-Canadian Dionne Brand and African-American June Jordan. These poets of resistance write poetry in order to criticize the establishment, warfare and its rationale, and American imperialism, among other issues. My research shows how these poets testimonials of contemporary socialist revolutions and armed conflicts in the Caribbean island of Grenada and in Nicaragua, respectively, have influenced their work in poetry and prose. Armed conflicts in places such as Iraq, Lebanon, Palestine, Israel, Bosnia, Rwanda, and Somalia are also approached in their poetry. The comparative analysis focuses on the devices employed by Brand and Jordan in their poetics of war, the ways that their poems dialogue with the discourse of critics and theorists, such as Susan Sontag, Virginia Woolf, Charles Simic and Judith Butler, and how their poetry depicts their life experiences as witnesses of conflict.
