What's American about American poetry?
I saw this website while working on my book on Lorca. I think I went through and counted how many poets mentioned him while reflecting on the Americanness of American poetry.
My answer would be either (a) not much or (b) everything. The very category implies Americanness, so every feature shared by enough poets would count. But if we don't have a definition of Americanness, then the exercise seems pointless.
