Many of my poems repeat and return to the themes of inarticulable loss, separation, and reimagination of the family and kinship.

Magnetic Refrain

By Nicky Sa-eun Schildkraut.

<b>Nicky Sa-eun Schildkraut</b> has taught poetry and composition in Florida, New Mexico, and Los Angeles, where she currently resides. She has a Ph.D. degree in literature and creative writing from the University of Southern California.Adopted from Korea at the age of two, Nicky Sa-eun Schildkraut grew up in New England, a circumstance that inevitably prompted an early fascination with the diaspora that followed the Korean civil war. She observes that, accordingly, “many of my poems repeat and return to the themes of inarticulable loss, separation, and reimagination of the family and kinship.” As the title of this debut collection suggests, Schildkraut locates these themes in a formal expression oriented between refrain as song and refrain as restraint--“a nuanced method of expressing the equivocal and uncertain” that produces a tense flexibility in the look and feel of her poems. Schildkraut’s provocative and intensely lyrical poems seek to both unsettle and complicate presumptions about what binds people together in times of longing and loss. They do not draw solely on personal experience, but also tell the larger tale of the Korean diaspora--particularly the experiences of its women--in stories of war brides, defectors, birth mothers and other adoptees.

FROM THE BOOK
"Writing of the self succeeds to the extent to which it links the personal and the particular with the collective and the universal, and anyone who has lived between two cultures, anyone who has yearned to belong, cannot fail to be moved by Nicky Schildkraut’s auto-poetic journey to reclaim a lost narrative of her life.
Heartfelt, compassionate, and insightful, these poems offer a healing balm to a world connected as never before through social media and yet a world whose denizens have never been so lonely."

—Prof. Bruce Fulton, University of British Columbia
