Water Puppets is a collection of poetry by Quan Barry, © University of Pittsburgh Press 2011
I liked this review! Alsoooo did I mention that I saw water puppets! Come to Southeast Asia for poetry research purposes! Interesting how the focus seems so US foreign policy based but the title is southeast asia centric.
I think the focus is much more personal than that. It’s undoubtedly a political book but I think the title does destabilize the perspective. Maybe in a good way?
Katie, I’m blown away by your ability to describe the transition from the ungenerous hubris of judgement back into our senses. It takes a knock sometimes.
I like how you appreciate Barry’s “giving herself space to explore ethical issues…” in long form poetry. Thanks for your own deep engagement and sharing your insights and thoughts with us!
