Abstract

Reviews 65 edge) “would be to visualize the [poetic] community as dominated by values that may be contradictory to those they actually hold” (p. 275). That is to say, the network analysis creates a network where something else, more integral holds the happenings together. But Admussen is not necessarily anti-big data. He offers the model of the Internet Movie Database as an alternative to the very linear, exchange-driven network (pp. 276–277), and in his conclusion he says that “Data-driven literary analysis can instead internalize the local difference that globalization has given us access to . . . [and] invent a distant reading whose distance is measured not from twentieth century Europe but from the places and times under study” (p. 281). Like Admussen’s model of the “happening,” the essays in this volume do not trace simple lines of modernism between stand-alone players, but rather participate in a much more symbiotic construction of arguments: not of edges and nodes, but of overlaps, swappings, and mutually productive ooze. Joseph R. Allen Joseph R. Allen is Professor Emeritus of Chinese literature and cultural studies and Founding Chair of Asian Languages and Literatures at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities.
