Description - Half-lit Houses by Tina Chang

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.
