Read full description of the books:
SHE RETURNS TO THE FLOATING WORLD, the second poetry collection of Northwest poet Jeannine Hall Gailey, captures love and loss, the alienation and transformations of female characters from anime and Japanese folk tales while reflecting on the difficulties and heroics of relationships. Gailey’s abiding interest in female heroes and tales of transformation, love, and loss bristles to life with a cast of characters including wives who become foxes, sisters who become birds, and robots with souls. This is a book about transformation that examines two recurring motifs in Japanese folk tales and popular culture: “the woman who disappears” and the “older sister/savior.” Many of the poems are persona poems spoken by characters from anime and manga, mythology, and fairy tales, like the story of the kitsune, or fox-woman, whose relationships are followed throughout the book.
