poetr y "In a letter to Edward Garnett, Joseph Conrad wrote, `I feel nothing clearly. Tarfia Faizullah And I am frightened when I remember that I have to drag it all out of myself.' These poems, I hope, attempt the impossible task Conrad describes by trying to enact the complexities of both obsessive memory and grief and to show how they rise up in odd and devastating ways in foreign or familiar settings. "Three of these poems, `Poetry Reading at St. Catherine's School for Girls,' `Reading Tranströmer in Bangladesh' and `En Route to Bangladesh, Another Crisis of Faith,' owe incomparable debts to three visionary writers whose work I always return to, particularly in the aftermath of difficult losses. Both `Poetry Reading at St. Catherine's School for Girls' and `To the Bangladeshi Cab Driver in San Francisco' owe a debt to my awkward and confused younger self, who likes to show up when I least expect it." Tarfia Faizullah's poems have appeared or are forthcoming in the Cincinnati Review, diode, Ploughshares and elsewhere. She is the recipient of an AWP Intro Journals Project Award and is currently based in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Poetry Recitation at St. Catherine's School for Girls
