Tina Chang's poems address the problems of family and heritage, initially inhabiting formally patterned stanzas that mimic the boundaries and bonds that are her subject, and then opening into free(-er) verse as the collection progresses and tries to break out of what has been imposed-both narratively and technically. These are passionate and accessible poems, simple in diction and declaration, elegant in image and syntax.
