    Abstract:
    After presenting an overview of scholarship on post-9/11 American poetry, my article focuses on a group of largely neglected post-9/11 poems, which deal with spectral consciousness and hallucinatory experiences. These poems not only challenge a number of traditional binaries like, ‘presence / absence’, ‘living /dead’, ‘synchronic / diachronic’ and so on, but also maintain in their most mature form a certain cognitive stability which lends a rich dimension to post-9/11 poetics. In examining spectral consciousness in such poems, my article also identifies interesting points of connection between postmodernism and them.
    Notes:
    readers of this article are earnestly requested to communicate with me, if they want to offer scholarly feedbacks on it.
