The Reception of Baudelaire in Japan, and Sanctuary in "America"
This issue, co-edited by Robert F. Barsky, David Maraniss and Daniel Ridge, is the fourth in a series on "cultural modernism" that considers the impact of French modernism upon different parts of the world. The articles were first presented at a 2015 conference at the W.T. Bandy Center devoted to the impact of the poetry and prose of Charles Baudelaire on modern Japanese culture.
Cultural border-crossing from France to Japan, and then to America, is complemented by new work by Vanderbilt Law School students on the sanctuary movement and its relation to current events in the United States.
The issue is rounded-off with a collection of poetry written by students at Vanderbilt University who have been inspired by Allen Ginsberg, David Maraniss and Robert Barsky to think about their "America".
