Editorial Reviews


Poems like these demand a response from the reader. There is no hiding or denying our call to respond to these poems in translation, which offer the opportunity to further understand ourselves in relation to another. The poems of Bones Will Crow exist in their own right and should be treated with the same deference that we afford poets who are more familiar and less complex. The contradictory and imposing forces that shape Burmese poetry continue to create an evolving poetics that courageously redefines and reasserts itself, both internally and externally, to the wider literate world. Saradha Soobrayen, Poetry Review 2012 --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

I like that you can also see what the poems look like in the original Burmese and that the poets seem to know each other. "I Fall into a Bummer" is an odd translation, considering what it's about.
