About this title


Poetry. Literary Nonfiction. THE BLIND CHATELAINE'S KEYS takes its impetus from three impossibilities: (i) biography (and autobiography)-something is always left out, (ii) artistic criticism: the critic's subjectivity inevitably comes to play, and (iii) pure persona in poems-the poet's self remains a presence no matter how much a poet may wish to disrupt the "I". Eileen R. Tabios, known as "Chatelaine" in poetry blogland, uses others' criticisms and engagements of her writings to create a narrative arc that serves as a biography. Since the biography is based (mostly) on her poems, it conceptually pushes the idea summed up by Ted Berrigan: "there is a self inside almost all of the poems."

About the Author:

Eileen R. Tabios has released 14 print, four electronic and 1 CD poetry collections, an art essay collection, a poetry essay/interview anthology, and a short story book. She is a recipient of the Philippines' National Book Award for Poetry. Her poems have been translated into Spanish, Italian, Tagalog, Japanese, Paintings, Video, Drawings, Visual Poetry, Mixed Media Collages, Kali Martial Arts, Modern Dance, and Sculpture.
