About this product
- DescriptionIn her first collection, Suji Kwock Kim confronts a number of very difficult subjects - colonialism, the Korean War, emigration, racism, and love. She considers what a homeland would be for a divided nation and a divided self: what it means to enter language, the body, the family, the community; to be a daughter, sister, lover, citizen, or exile. In settings from New York to San Francisco, from Scotland to Seoul, her poems question what threads hold / our lives together in cities and gardens, battlefields and small towns. Across the -man's-land between every you and I, her speakers encounter, quarrel with, or hor others, traveling between the living and the dead, between horror over the disastrous events of the past and hope for the future. Drawing upon a wide range of voices, styles, and perspectives, Notes from the Divided Country bears witness to the vanishing world. Here is a rare new talent in American poetry, showcased in this dazzling debut.
- Author BiographySuji Kwock Kim's poems have appeared in The Nation, The New Republic, Asian-American Poetry: The Next Generation, and other journals and anthologies. She divides her time between San Francisco and New York.
