The Narrow Road to the Interior: Poems (Hardcover)
Author: Kimiko Hahn
Publisher: W.W. Norton (2006)
Kimiko Hahn takes up the Japanese prose-poetry genre zuihitsu ("running brush") which utilizes tactics such as juxtaposition, contradiction, and broad topical variety in exploring her various identities as mother and lover, wife and poet, daughter of varied traditions.
"An expansive new work from a poet of rigorous intelligence, fierce anger, and deep vulnerability."
