Poetry. Asian & Asian American Studies. Women's Studies. THE IN(TER)VENTION OF THE HAY(NA)KU: SELECTED TERCETS 1996-2019 presents tercets that Eileen R. Tabios created during her writing career, a process that led to her invention of the hay(na)ku poetic form. The hay(na)ku has been practiced by poets and visual artists around the world. The collection also presents her tercets in other forms, from the lyric to the experimental, and ends with her take on the Death Poems from East Asian cultures.
Eileen R. Tabios is one of the more adventuresome and truly creative poets before the public today. She is absolutely able to write poems in the usual styles and make her works resonate with every reader. But she always is searching for ways to push the use of words into formats or situation that challenge the brain as well as heart.--San Francisco Review of Books
