Il Vietnam dilaniato dalla guerra e dal comunismo; New York - il simbolo dell'America - ferita dalla violenza e dall'intolleranza; l'omosessualità come condizione di diversità ed emarginazione. Trentacinque poesie, ispirate al vissuto di questo giovanissimo autore vietnamita, emigrato in America ancora bambino. Ad animare "Cielo notturno con fori d'uscita", la sua prima raccolta poetica, è una lingua nuova, di commistione e creazione, in cui l'amore per il classicismo - il mito, l'estetica, l'armonia, la fede nell'ordine e nella simmetria - si fonde con la ricerca di nuove forme, sempre fedeli al verso libero e a un dialogo fra prosa e lirismo sorprendente e vitale.

Night Sky with Exit Wounds is an invigorating, razor-sharp poetry collection that meditates with both candor and artistry on themes of war, nationality, sexuality, and violence. Vuong, born in Vietnam and raised in the US, threads details of his own family history into his broader narrative verse th Leggi tutto
Qué hermoso es Ocean Vuong!!! Tiene algo super triste, como una voz antigua que sale de todo lo que escribe, emotivo, duro, hermoso. Hay temáticas que toca en su novela, o autobiografía, que aparecen acá. Su familia, las historias super duras que vivieron, el amor, el deseo. Es bellísimo.
This poetry collection has been recommended twice on the Reading Envy Podcast by readers I trust - Shawn ( Episode 111 ) and Lauren ( Episode 147 ) but I certainly took my time in getting to it. Poems span from grappling with a father's experiences and a painful family/country history to the poet's own b Leggi tutto
