Cultural Writing. Literary Criticism. Essays. PINOY POETICS is a collection of poetics essays (with sample poems) representing over 40 poets of Filipino heritage who speak onbehalf of themselves, ancestors and peers who have been historically ignored by U.S. literary, cultural, and academic institutions. These essays show what is unique to Filipino poetics, including responses to American imperialism, the postcolonial and diasporic Filipino experience, questions about historical narrative, and the uses and abuses of language imposed by colonizers. Public and academic libraries, as well as personal collections with interests in Poetry, Creative Writing, Asian American Studies, Cultural Studies, Ethnic Studies, Identity Poetics, Filipino American Literature, and Philippine Literature will find this book indispensable.
