Incisive and confessional, Raised by Wolves collects the acclaimed work of Taiwanese poet-filmmaker Amang for the first time in English. In her poems, Amang turns her razor-sharp eye to everything from her suitors to international affairs. Amang’s poetry, keenly observational yet occasionally absurd, embraces the cruelty and beauty of life in equal measure.
Raised by Wolves also presents a groundbreaking new framework for translation. Amang and translator Steve Bradbury work in dialogue, positing the transition between languages as conversational, interactive, and constantly shifting.
