A Thousand Crimson Blooms

Eileen Chong's luminous poetry examines the histories - personal, familial and cultural - that form our identities and obsessions. A Thousand Crimson Blooms is a deepening of her commitment to a poetics of sensuous simplicity and complex emotions, even as she confronts the challenges of infertility or fraught mother-daughter relations. Entwined throughout are questions of migration and belonging. Viewed as a whole, this collection is a field of flowers, aflame with light.
