        The Floral Apron, by Marilyn Chin

        “What is the loss of country if it were not the loss of self?” This is the question Marilyn Chin asks in much of her poetry. This video segment from Poetry Everywhere features Chin, at the Dodge Poetry Festival, reading her poem “The Floral Apron” in which an immigrant woman keeps Chinese tradition alive in America, for the next generation, and for herself, but is she doing the right thing?

        For a biography of the poet Marilyn Chin please visit the Poetry Foundation Web site.

        This media asset comes from Poetry Everywhere filmed at the Geraldine R. Dodge Poetry Festival.
