A Portrait of the Self as Nation: New and Selected Poems
Spanning thirty years of dazzling work--from luminous early love lyrics to often-anthologized Asian American identity anthems, from political and subversive hybrid forms to feminist manifestos--A Portrait of the Self as Nation is a selection from one of America's most original and vital voices. Marilyn Chin's passionate, polyphonic poetry is deeply engaged with the complexities of cultural assimilation, feminism, and the Asian American experience; she spins precise, beautiful metaphors as she illuminates hard-hitting truths.
