Abstract (Summary)

Poetry as a Museum is a two-part collection of poems that reveals different subject matter from the poet’s view of the world. The first part deals with family and the juxtapositions of life in the United States and Vietnam. The second part is focused on the poet, her voice, and lens outside of family. Both parts cohere as a collection around the idea of a poetry museum, one that curates the various stories, memories, experiences, and interests of family and poet, in Vietnam and the United States.
