Katabasis by Jay G Ying


Product Details

Winner of the 2019 New Poets Prize judged by Mary Jean Chan

This mythopoetic and experimental sequence of poems, texts and translations links the ancient Sumerian epic ’The Descent of Inanna’ to contemporary neo-colonial violences as a consequence of military occupation.
