About this product
- DescriptionThis debut collection of vivid, lyrical poems explores the emotional landscape of childhood without confession and without straightforward narrative. Chang sweeps together myth and fairy tale, skirting the edges of events to focus on the psychological ter of experience: the underpinnings of identity and the role of nature in both constructing and erasing a self. From the edge of the ocean, where things constantly shift and dissolve, through the forest's thick, / where the trees meet the dark, to an imaginary cliffside town of fog, this book makes a journey both natural and psychological, using experiments in language and form to capture the search for personhood and place.
- Author BiographyJennifer Chang's poems have appeared in Kenyon Review, New England Review, New Republic, Prairie Schooner and other publications. She is a founder and advisory board member of Kundiman, a nonprofit organization that promotes Asian American poetry.
