He has organized the poems - which range from ancient to very recent works - around nine main themes that include Vietnamese views of society, responses to foreign influences, and feelings about such universal themes as relationships between men and women, the role of art in life, and conflicts among social classes.

Poetry. Asian & Asian American Studies. Edited and translated from the Vietnamese by Linh Dinh. "Carefully selected for their literary significance as well as their antagonism towards state power, cultural orthodoxy and conventional wisdom, the hundred and sixty Vietnamese-language poems annotated, contextualized and expertly translated into English in THE DELUGE provide a stunningly original (counter) history-in-fragments of Vietnamese society from the 1960's up till today. While Linh Dinh is typically known for his extraordinary poetry, fiction and journalism, THE DELUGE showcases his remarkable talents as a translator, anthologist and cultural historian. I love everything about this book: the sneaky-smart selections, the illuminating yet ruthlessly efficient author-bios, the fascinating addendum and, of course, the absurdly brilliant translations."—Peter Zinoman "In still-cratered Vietnam, apparently, things are even more screwed up for avant-garde poets than they were in the U.S. back in the 50s. Howl had its trial, but in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, non-conforming poets are just plain denied venues of publication. In fact, a whole generation of poets active in the South before 1975 has pretty much been erased from memory via State controls. At long last, some of them are brought forward here, along with many younger ones, absolute revelations in some cases, all of them examples of cultural courage. Not a little of poetry's history is about singular, strange and moving works getting written under conditions of proscription, censure, samizdat and exile. And there is plenty here of this kind. Ron Silliman is on to something when he keeps insisting the indomitable Linh Dinh should be our next Poet Laureate. Now Dinh's edited what is surely one of the major, startling anthologies to appear in the United States in this new century. Long live the insurgent poets of Vietnam."—Kent Johnson

Vietnamese New Formalism poetry is a type of modern folk poetry, not the kind of poetry that has become literature and selected for lectures in the schools under intellectual scrutiny, but the kind of poetry that permeates the common folk, reflecting their ordinary daily activities. --Dang Tien.

This is a collection of English verse translations of poems written by authors of Vietnamese origin living nearly all over the world. Our humble wish is to introduce their culture to you poetry-loving readers. * The end of the Vietnam War brought about, among others, two consequences: the Vietnam Syndrome, and the Boat People. The Vietnamese who fled their country following the collapse of the South Vietnamese (Republic of Vietnam) government in 1975 consisted of those who crossed the ocean, crowded into small boats, and those who crossed the border, stealthily amid wild jungles, constantly throughout two decades, totaling nearly one million. This did not include about half that number who lost their lives because of the communist police, the pirates, dehydration, starvation, and drowning. And since the majority did it by sea, they all were called Boat People. Approximately half that million were received and resettled in the United States, while the rest in Australia, Canada, France, the United Kingdom, Germany, Japan, Switzerland, Norway, Sweden, New Zealand, Belgium, Finland, and many other countries. The current strength of the Vietnamese communities in 150 different countries of the world is estimated at over three millions, mostly in the US. Together, most Vietnamese individuals and organizations abroad now would consider themselves Political Refugees. And they have their own unnamed“Vietnamese’s Vietnam Syndrome,”which is different from and more complicated than the Americans’ Vietnam Syndrome. Not only the Vietnamese Political Refugees themselves but also their descendants, the next generations, do have in their hearts and minds the same emotions and reflections. Naturally, poets are among those who experience so deeply their personal ups and downs as well as understand so profoundly their fellow-citizens’ vicissitudes of life that they cannot fail to express their true sentiments and thoughts in their writings. * You will find in this anthology, through 146 poems by 81 Vietnamese of both sexes and of various ages living in the USA, Australia, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Norway, and Vietnam, the core of their feelings (or syndrome): Feud (with those who have caused deaths, injuries, pain, separation from relatives, loss of properties...); nostalgia; gratitude (to the host countries that have offered refuge and opportunities...); improvements (to integrate into and contribute to the welfare of their adoptive societies); aspirations (for a free, democratic and prosperous Vietnam). These poets, however, have tried to maintain their four-thousand-year-old cultural legacy while self-confidently to integrate into the melting-pot. * The authors are not only individuals, strangers, of a different race; but, as human beings, reading their works might suggest to widen our knowledge, to discover, learn about, and sympathetically share their situation, somewhat our very own human condition. We hope that this might be a modest part in promoting communication and understanding between nations. THI NHÂN

The poems in Black Dog, Black Night highlight an aspect of Vietnamese verse previously unfamiliar to American readers: its remarkable contemporary voices. Celebrating Vietnam’s diverse and thriving literary culture, the poems collected here combine elements of French Romanticism, Russian Expressionism, American Modernism, and native folk stories into a Vietnamese poetic tradition marked by vivid imagery, powerful emotions, and inventive forms. Included here are 17 postmodern and experimental Vietnamese poets, including the founding editor of Skanky Possum magazine, as well as American poets of Vietnamese descent.

The early 1960s to the mid-1970s was one of the most turbulent periods in American history. The U.S. military was engaged in its longest, costliest overseas conflict, while the home front was torn apart by riots, protests, and social activism. In the midst of these upheavals, an underground and countercultural press emerged, giving activists an extraordinary forum for a range of imaginative expressions. Poetry held a prominent place in this alternative media. The poem was widely viewed by activists as an inherently anti-establishment form of free expression, and poets were often in the vanguards of political activism. Hearts and Minds is the first book-length study of the poems of the Black Liberation, Women's Liberation, and GI Resistance movements during the Vietnam era. Drawing on recent cultural and literary theories, Bibby investigates the significance of images, tropes, and symbols of human bodies in activist poetry. Many key political slogans of the period--"black is beautiful," "off our backs"--foreground the body. Bibby demonstrates that figurations of bodies marked important sites of social and political struggle. Although poetry played such an important role in Vietnam-era activism, literary criticism has largely ignored most of this literature. Bibby recuperates the cultural-historical importance of Vietnam-era activist poetry, highlighting both its relevant contexts and revealing how it engaged political and social struggles that continue to motivate contemporary history. Arguing for the need to read cultural history through these "underground" texts, Hearts and Minds offers new grounds for understanding the recent history of American poetry and the role poetry has played as a medium of imaginative political expression.

Ideas, culture, and capital flow across national borders with unprecedented speed, but we tend not to think of poems as taking part in globalization. Jahan Ramazani shows that poetry has much to contribute to understanding literature in an extra-national frame. Indeed, the globality of poetry, he argues, stands to energize the transnational turn in the humanities. Poetry in a Global Age builds on Ramazani’s award-winning A Transnational Poetics, a book that had a catalytic effect on literary studies. Ramazani broadens his lens to discuss modern and contemporary poems not only in relation to world literature, war, and questions of orientalism but also in light of current debates over ecocriticism, translation studies, tourism, and cultural geography. He offers brilliant readings of postcolonial poets like Agha Shahid Ali, Lorna Goodison, and Daljit Nagra, as well as canonical modernists such as W. B. Yeats, Wallace Stevens, T. S. Eliot, and Marianne Moore. Ramazani shows that even when poetry seems locally rooted, its long memory of forms and words, its connections across centuries, continents, and languages, make it a powerful imaginative resource for a global age. This book makes a strong case for poetry in the future development of world literature and global studies.
