This book examines the work of several key poets in the flowering of Korean American poetry in the first decade of the twenty-first century. In careful readings of individual collections, the author demonstrates the aesthetic depth and variety of recent Korean American poetry and shows how that work might appear to an ethnic Korean critical vision as well as from a resistant American perspective.
