Abstract

Arirang Redux is a collection of poems that explores the theme of female identity across East-West cultures, as well as such universal ideas as grief, loss, power, and memory--considered through the lens of an Asian female, multi-cultured, immigrant persona. Written mostly in a free verse, lyric-narrative style, these poems examine the psychological boundaries across genders, cultures, traditions, languages, and social hierarchies that exert forces on the lives of women.
