Summary
  • "A piercing debut collection of poems from a sensational new talent exploring gender, race, and violence."--Jacket flap
  • "In her arresting collection, urgently relevant for our times, poet Emily Jungmin Yoon confronts the histories of sexual violence against women, focusing in particular on so-called comfort women, Korean women who worked in Japanese-occupied territories during World War II. In wrenching language, "A Cruelty Special to Our Species" unforgettably describes the brutalities of war and the fear and sorrow of those whose lives and bodies were swept up by a colonizing power, amplifying the voices of an oppressed group of people whose histories have often been erased and overlooked. "What is a body in a stolen country?" Yoon asks. "What is right in war?" Moving readers through time, space, and different cultures, and bringing vivid life to the testimonies and confessions of the victims, Yoon takes possession of a painful and shameful history even while unearthing moments of rare beauty in acts of resistance and resilience, and in the instinct to survive and bear witness."--Jacket flap
