Keywords:

  • transatlantic internationalism - slyly promised by presence of word “FULCRUM” along the book's spine;
  • Taken together - works such as The Waste Land and the BLAST beginning to compose the early canon of an equivocally modernism;
  • The renegotiation - British power severely strained and depleted by the exertions of war;
  • translation - postwar period becoming a method, neither British nor American exclusively, for rewriting (or inventing) traditions;
  • two centuries thereafter - poem's object remaining outside and its form constituting a historical map, marking poetic trade across which traditions travel
