    1 thought on “Hard Love Province: Poems”

    1. Hard Love Province is an engaging work of art. Marilyn Chin gives us a poetry that needs no explanation or interpretation. Her sensual phrasing punctuated by artistic use of space and line breaks allow each syllable to sink into your soul beyond the mere meaning of words. These poems seed directly to the senses where they sprout into the vivid voice of human experience. Chin’s work is rich with allusion to American poets, but as an Asian-American firmly rooted in contemporary culture, she brin [...]

    2. Marilyn Chin's newest poems may have ramped up the power and sting of her earlier work. The poems prod and poke and beat me about the heart. I think there is some edge to anger that I have to admire—we are so afraid of intensity, we seem to want everything to be so soft, and we want heroes to tell us how to be and what to care about. I have to admire the intensity of Chin's words. The paradox of purity and anger. "You must be suffering from poetry." What a lovely way to die.

    3. It's amazing to me how much Chin grows with each book. I first read some of this collection in American Poetry Review and was so moved I wrote to her about it. I've been looking forward to this collection ever since (am not sure how I missed last summer's pub date). Needless to say, it doesn't disappoint. The repetition of key images throughout gives the collected work a strange coherence--strange because the design is deliberately fragmented. And yet not. The repetition, because it is so judici [...]

    4. This is the first collection of Chin's I have ever read. There is a steady anger pulsing under the entire work, like a a stream of intense lava. Sometimes that anger burst through onto the poem. Other times it is left, hinted at and never fully addressed. The result is a small book with much emotion. For those checking this collection out, I particularly recommend the poems "Black President," "Horns: A Coda," and "Beautiful Boyfriend." Well worth reading and contemplation.

    5. Strikes me as a poet's poet, and I'm not a poet. But I did like a few parts, like this line: "It's not that you are rare Nor are you extraordinary O lone wren sobbing on the bodhi treeYou are simple and sincere."

    6. 2.5 StarsIn this, her fourth volume of poetry (pub. 2014), Marilyn Chin ponders the theme of deep grief and mourning after the loss of one's beloved. She plays with the imagery of quiet moments, typically occurring during late night, moonlit hours while also exploring the sensation of simmering anger that is sometimes intertwined with grief. While in this mode, Chin also doesn't shy away from tougher material, such as the dark and morbid imagery that can play across the mind in moments of emotio [...]

    7. I actually loved these poems - it spoke to me as a poet, as a non-white woman. sexy, referential, clean , unpunishing lines. these poems resisted tokenization. Chin isn't trying to be the asian poet slot on college syllabi. i love the way she writers herself into poems, claiming her own specificity, while also not whitewashing herself. sexuality and sensuality in these poems is also captivating, surprising. i think that's my favorite part of this book - how she surprises me without punishing the [...]

    8. yeah its poetry some of it the best I've read since Jim Morrison left this awkward rock hurtling through space. I just don't care to read about her personal stuff. I suddenly understand Spiro Agnew and his rantings about effete intellectuals
