Asian American Studies. THE BOUNTY, by the Korean American Kim, has become an acknowledged classic of Asian American literature of the past decade. More than that, it is one of the best books of poetry of the 1990s, now in a new edition to bring it into the next millenium.
“The tesserae Myung Mi Kim so remarkably fashions here come gradually to form an articulate and coherent pattern, but a pattern in constant process of renewal and reorganization.”—Michael Palmer
