The Awakening: A Long Poem Triptych & A Poetics Fragment By Eileen R. TabiosThe Awakening: A Long Poem Triptych & A Poetics Fragment
By Eileen R. Tabios

Published by Theenk Books, New York
Publication Date: January 20, 2013

The Awakening by Eileen R. Tabios is a triptych of long poems exploring the diverse ways an awakening unfolds. Also included is an essay on her personal perspectives on the indigenous and the avant garde. The poems range over such disparate elements as the sexual lives of painters (and discussing such details with Dr. William Carlos William) to real-time emails on the poet's "9-1-1" birthday after the attacks on New York's World Trade Center to Angelina Jolie's involvement with refugees. The book's attention span/expanse reflects Ms. Tabios' attempts to collapse time into a point of universal empathy as the reader is asked: "Who decides what kind of life and why? // What kind of / life and / Why?"
