Synopsis

In his studies of borrowing from distant poetic traditions, Serrano aims to uncover the heterogenity of influences and intentions in the most canonical of texts: "Mallarme" (1842-98), "Segalen" (1878-1919), "Wang Wei" (701-61), the "Classic of Poetry" (8th century BCE), "Buhturi" (821-97), and the "Qur'an" (7th century CE). Arguing, among other things that Mallarme was really a Chinese poet, that ancient Chinese poets discovered the workings of film imagery, and that the Qur'an's apparently disjointed narrative is profoundly lyrical, Serrano intends to overturn accepted notions of how to read individual works. He brings methodologies from the study of one literature to bear on the reading of another.
