Regular price HK$280.00

  • Recommended by artist Shen Xin
  • Argue about the full complexity, formal and social, of Asian American poetry--and of minority poetry--and for rethinking how we read American poetry in general.
  • Focus on the work of five contemporary Asian American poets-Li-Young Lee, Marilyn Chin, John Yau, Mei-mei Berssenbrugge, and Pamela Lu-the book contends that aesthetic forms are inseparable from social, political, and historical contexts in the writing and reception of all poetry.
  • Questions the tendency of critics and academics alike to occlude the race role in their discussions of the American poetic tradition and the double standard applied in reading poems by poets who racial minorities are.
  • The first sustained study of the formal properties in Asian American poetry across a range of aesthetic styles, from traditional lyric to avant-garde.
