Pulling a Dragon's Teeth PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Pulling a Dragon's Teeth free pdf There is a proverb in China, hu kou ba ya, literally "pulling teeth from a tiger's mouth," used to describe any extremely difficult task. When Shao Wei first arrived in the United States at age thirty-one, her desire to write poems in English seemed almost impossible. Pulling a Dragon's Teeth, a first stop on the successful journey toward that goal, is filled with the rhythms and visions of this exciting young poet. Shuttling between her childhood in a small mountain city on the shores of the Yangtze River (soon to be flooded by the Three Gorges Dam project) and adulthood in Manhattan, Shao Wei captures the pains and joys of tradition and displacement familiar to any immigrant. Blending fairy tales, New York images, family stories, and the universal rites of passage associated with growing up, she paints a vibrant canvas of passion and imagination.
