Wild Apple (Korean Voices #20)
"HeeDuk Ra's poems evoke thoughts about time and language . . . Through her work, time does not glide nor stand on the edge. It crumbles."--SeokJo Gang, literary critic
Wild Apple takes the reader to cultural and intellectual experiences: Native American burial mounds, cremations at the Ganges River, the Paris morgue of the 19th century, the movie Being John Malkovich, and the pointillism of Georges Seurat. Ra also brings Korean culture to the American audience, from the female clam divers to Buddhist temples.
HeeDuk Ra has published seven books of poetry. In 2007 she participated in the International Writing Program at the University of Iowa.
