    This was pretty good! There was a lot of stuff I've seen being talked about in the media quite recently like stuff about the sexualisation of Asian women and just anti-Asian violence in general, and it was really good to read about it in an artistic form from the perspective of people who've dealt with this kind of stuff personally. Also, Maria Mazziotti Gillan's work in the book is pretty awesome - a lot of her poems were just really good. The book was divided into about 4 sections, and I kinda e This was pretty good!

Also, Maria Mazziotti Gillan's work in the book is pretty awesome - a lot of her poems were just really good. The book was divided into about 4 sections, and I kinda enjoyed the first two the most and then after that, it flatlined a bit but it was still good to read. (I suddenly really feel like re-reading The Great Gatsby after this??)

    This anthology is stuffed with fabulous poetry reflecting a variety of ethnic traditions and other perspectives. I used it in my "Literary Diversity" course the first semester I taught it but honestly was overwhelmed by it. This upcoming semester, when I am teaching the class again, I decided to adopt a book by a single author, but I will definitely be returning to this collection in the future.

    The first, possibly, or the only poetry anthology I read all the way through. Many recurrent sentiments of being against white, blonde, blue eyed people, lots of venom and sorrow. Too bad none of this will be on the GRE literature test coming up in a month for me. Perhaps tides will change.

    This book was published in 1994. It could’ve been written today I could’ve been written in 1894. We have a long, cruel history in this country: to the first peoples, the enslaved, the immigrants from every country and ethnicity who were unwelcome here. Maybe someday we will stop treating each other as “the other”. Reading these poems may be a good start.

    Great variety in this anthology. It has been particularly useful in teaching a high school literature unit on examining what it means to be American through a multi-cultural lens.

    I think this is the most amazing book I ever read in my entire life. I'm learning more about poetry than I expected because I'm trying to become a poet when I grow up! I want people to experience how this book can connect to you faster than you can say, "OMG, this book is awesome" I think this is the most amazing book I ever read in my entire life.
