Abstract

Abstract:

Allusions to Lorine Niedecker in the work of contemporary poets Elizabeth Willis, Liana Quill, and Pattie McCarthy construct a shadow literary history that advances Niedecker's contributions more effectively than literary scholarship. Deploying allusion in ways deeply consonant with Niedecker's ethos, these works establish systems of referral that counter the more competitive, exclusionary modes of the traditional trope and offer fresh ways of understanding affinities among women writers.
