Abstract:

These poems search for accesses to home as a problematic term bound into the shifting terrain of language, subjectivity and imposed identities. From seemingly idyllic digressions to the destructive internment of Japanese Canadians during and after WWII, Roy Miki's poems can't stop moving - towards the next poem, towards the next file of words. But always, in every word, towards a sense of home that must always remain elusive.
