ABOUT THIS BOOK
When Edward Hirsch reprinted Da's "Garden Fragrance" and "Night Harvest." (from Six Vietnamese Poets) in his column in The Washington Post, he gave special praise to the simultaneous clarity and complexity of Da's poetry. Now, for the first time in English, readers can enjoy a full, bilingual volume of her selected work. Many of her poems deal with her experiences during the war, but her range of themes is wide-including love, motherhood, women's issues, and the sometimes-difficult movement into middle age.
