Myung Mi Kim's Commons weighs at the such a lot delicate of scales the minute grains of everyday life in either peace and conflict, registering as only a few works of literature have performed our universal burden of being topic to historical past. Abstracting colonization, conflict, immigration, ailment, and first-language loss till in simple terms sparse words stay, Kim takes at the suffering and displacement of these whose lives are embedded in history.

Kim's clean areas are loaded silences: openings by which readers input the textual content and locate their method. those silences exhibit gaps in reminiscence and articulate reviews that won't translate into language in any respect. Her phrases retrieve the prior in a lot an analogous method the human brain does: a picture sparks one other photo, a odor, the sound of bombs, or dialog. those silences and pauses provide the poems their structure.

Commons's fragmented lyric pushes the reader to query the development of the poem. identification surfaces, sinks again, then rises back. in this transferring flooring, Kim creates which means via juxtaposed fragments. Her verse, with its stops and begins, its austere but wealthy photos, bargains splinters of testimony and objection. It negotiates a continually altering global, scavenging via scraps of expertise, areas round phrases, and remnants of emotion for a language that enfolds the enormity of what we won't express.
