Subjected People: Towards a Grammar for the Underclass in Elizabeth Bishop’s Poetry
“By examining “First Death in Nova Scotia,” “Cootchie,” “A Norther–Key West,” “Squatter’s Children,” “In the Waiting Room,” “A Miracle for Breakfast” and “Sestina,”5 I will show how the cycle of domination extends in Bishop’s work from childhood to adulthood on both personal and societal levels.” Includes links to responses to this article written by other scholars, and published in later issues of Connotations.
Contains: Criticism
Author: Jonathan Ausubel
From: Connotations: A Journal for Critical Debate 4.1-2 (1994/95): 83-97
