The Mirror Diary: Selected Essays - Poets on Poetry (Paperback)Garrett Hongo (author)
- We can order this from the publisher
The Mirror Diary tracks the formation of a learned consciousness regarding multiple and sometimes competing influences from literary tradition, regional and ethnic histories, and the quest for an original poetic voice. Throughout, Hongo's focus is on a literary response to issues and events, a considered meditative and decidedly poetic language informed by tradition and reflective of contemporary experience. He asks the question How shall I sing of this body?, burdened by a painful history and yet inspired by the beauties of language and the moral values of justice and recognition.
