    One thought on “The Collected Poems of Chika Sagawa”

    1. What a shame she died so young! I loved her prose fragments the most, her perception of spectacles and her anecdotes.

    2. From HFR contributor AK Afferez: "Sagawa is a poet unfettered by borders and boundaries: as she lived in an increasingly cosmopolitan Tokyo, she straddled old and new forms, claimed Japanese and Western literary influences, collided natural and urban imagery, and took her cues from both literary and visual arts. She claimed, 'I believe that the work of a painter is very similar to that of a poet,' and indeed, Nakayasu highlights how Sagawa’s writings can remind us of Cubism, in the way she cha [...]

    3. A really unique collection from a poet I'd never heard of before I stumbled across her in my local book store. Some favorite poems: In White, Sleeping, Ancient Flowers and Prelude. A great introduction to modern Japanese poetry.

    4. I loved a lot of these poems translated by Sawako Nakayasu. My favorites extrapolate on a sensation or a moment in a way that a haiku or tanka might, but does so with radically different techniques. A painterly interest in color and light depicted from a vantage point between the cityscape and the naturescape feels contemporary. Everything is roaring. The Day the Bell TollsAll dayI hear the fallen, trampled leaves groaning. Such is the afternoon of lifeIt reports the time that has already passed [...]

    5. Poetry is not my forte. I read this for a reading challenge and it was light torture. The only time in my life I feigned an enjoyment for poetry was when an internet friend's interpretation of whatever poem I just read was available to me to read, enabling me to understand the poem I just read. Chika Sagawa has no such internet friend interpretations.For the low score, apologies to the Sagawa estate, in case you're reading this, and to you humans who can get something out of avant-garde poetry. [...]

    6. This collection is phenomenal. Sagawa uses innovative language and imagery that brings fresh emotion to the poetry she writes. Her poems are incredibly dreamlike and this allows the images to bring forth unbelievable tones that impact her audience. While reading this work I felt dread, happiness, joy, and sorrow.I'm glad Sawako Nakayasu translated Sagawa's works because I feel like the poetry community is a little less without this young author's work.
