AFTER THE FIRE: NEW AND SELECTED POEMS
by Boey Kim Cheng
published by firstfruits publication
After the Fire begins with poems summoning the dead to the poet’s new life in the adoptive country. They restore memories of the absent father and grandmother, uncovering a narrative continuity between the past and present, old and new countries, and between the dead and the living.
While the new poems signal a sense of homecoming, the selections from three previous volumes register the quarrel with home and self, a disaffection that led to journeys in search of an elsewhere, to encounters with remarkable individuals, sacramental meetings that, when recalled, yield what Robert Frost calls "a momentary stay against confusion".
