Description Standing Water: Poems de Eleanor Chai:

"Since I made you, you may"" imagine I set myself on fire--"" or better, say: you lit the funeral pyre"" from ten thousand days away."A young woman in Paris encounters an uncanny presence on a tour of a small museum. A study by Rodin of the dancer Little Hanako--titled "Head of Sorrow"--triggers in the young woman recognition of her mother, a mother erased from her life since childhood.Thus begins Eleanor Chai's "Standing Water," one of the most remarkable first books of poetry in recent years. It is a journey into the past as well as the present--into the narrative hidden from the poet since birth, as well as the strategies that she has adopted to survive. It is a journey about how we learn to cope with, to perceive and describe, the world. It is a story about savage privilege and deprivation.Haunting the whole is the figure of the real Little Hanako--Rodin's model, a Japanese artist displaced in Europe, the medium through which other artists dream and discover the world. Eleanor Chai lives and works in Fairfield, Connecticut. She received a master of arts in anthropology from Harvard University and is the founder of the Pierrepont School. This is her first collection of poetry.
