Poems of KIM YIDEUM, KIM HAENGSOOK & KIM MIN JEONG

Description

This collection brings together three of the most exciting voices in contemporary Korean poetry to the English language in translation. These three women poets shock and delight, entertain and de-familiarize, corrupt and contaminate traditional readings and stereotypical definitions of Asian women, Asian poetry, Asian-ness. While K-pop girl groups sell cuteness, marketing the female body as an object to be consumed by the male gaze, poems by these three women reveal how that manufactured cuteness is a state of acute deformity. If the male gaze strips the female body of significant social agency through a loss of authenticity or aura, these poets give us a world that shuts down the power behind that gaze.

This tenth volume in the Asia Pacific Series from Vagabond Press presents three essential women's voices in contemporary world literature with a selection of work from Kim Yideum, Kim Haengsook & Kim Min Jeong and gives English-language readers new access to the hybridity of genre and style representative of Korea's ("Future Wave") poets.
