About this title

Synopsis:

In Liu's text the ascent, the ecstatic apprehension of the divine (he is a religious poet, there are no two ways about it, though perhaps there are twenty) can be effected only by a demonic insistence upon abjection, upon the descent. He shrives himself, and his poems show the marks of the lash--they are the lash--and his vision is naturalized to a degree that would astonish his predecessors, that astonishes us. This is a shocking poetry, and the shock is not of recognition, but of estrangement. It makes an unfamiliar claim upon us, the claim of apostasy. --Richard Howard, from the forward

About the Author:

Timothy Liu was born and raised in San Jose, California by immigrant parents from Mainland China. He has received fellowships from the University of Houston, the University of Massachusetts, and the Breadloaf Writer's Conference.
