To be the poet by Maxine Hong Kingston( Book )

8 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To Be the Poet is Kingston's manifesto, the avowal and declaration of a writer who has devoted a good part of her sixty years to writing prose, and who, over the course of this spirited and inspiring book, works out what the rest of her life will be, in poetry. Taking readers along with her, this celebrated writer gathers advice from her gifted contemporaries and from sages, critics, and writers whom she takes as ancestors. She consults her past, her conscience, her time - and puts together a volume at once irreverent and deeply serious, playful and practical, partaking of poetry throughout as it pursues the meaning, the possibility, and the power of the life of the poet." "A manual on inviting poetry, on conjuring the elusive muse, To Be the Poet is also a harvest of poems, from charms recollected out of childhood to bursts of eloquence, wonder, and waggish wit along the way to discovering what it is to be a poet."--Jacket
Les hommes de Chine by Maxine Hong Kingston( Book )

2 editions published in 1986 in French and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dans ce livre, accueilli triomphalement aux Etats-Unis lors de sa parution, l'auteur met en scène une Chine imaginaire et une Amérique chinoise (" la Montagne d'Or " des immigrants chinois du siècle dernier) en recréant sous forme romanesque le destin et l'expérience d'immigration des hommes de sa famille, dressant ainsi les contours d'une généalogie de l'exil et les possibilités d'une culture hybride qui se confondent avec l'histoire américaine. Maxime Hong Kingston s'identifie totalement avec la vie de chacun de ses ascendants, au point de paraître épouser des valeurs millénaires et masculines qu'en fait elle critique avec ironie, jetant par là même un regard acide sur le contraste irréductible qui oppose deux cultures, l'une vénérable, et l'autre " moderne ". Qu'elle évoque l'enfance de son père, alors lettré itinérant en Chine, puis ses aventures dans une blanchisserie de New York ou bien qu'elle décrive les plantations de canne à sucre d " la Montagne de Santal " (Hawaï) où son grand-père avait travaillé et vécu, l'auteur des " hommes de Chine " donne toujours à son récit le ton d'une mythologie rare - comme si le réel, dans cette mémoire des Chinois-Américains, excédait souvent la fiction.--Quatrième de couverture
