1 Ho Xuan Huong; Balaban, John (Translator) Spring Essence: The Poetry of Ho Xuan Huong
Port Townsend, WA Copper Canyon Press (2000). 1556591489 / 9781556591488 Very Good 
Third printing. Text in Nom, Vietnamese, and English. Trade paperback. 134 pp. Signed by Balaban and Ngo Thanh Nhan. "Autographed Copy" sticker. A clean, attractive copy. "Ho delighted in puns and double entendres, tonal play, anagram-like subtexts and elaborate rhyme schemes that were even more intricate than the established formal patterns warranted. Many of her poems conceal an alternate meaning, usually sexual, sometimes obscene. In the simple landscape of daily objects -- jackfruit, river snails, a loom, a chess set, and perhaps most famously a paper fan -- Ho found metaphors for sex, which she turned into trenchant indictments of the plight of women and the arrogance, hypocrisy and corruption of men." - NYT 
Price: 17.95 USD
