Poetry. Asian & Asian American Studies. ETERNAL SNOW is a testament to the power of words to inspire, encourage, and heal across vastly disparate cultures and distant places. Over one hundred and twenty-five poets from around the world come together in this anthology to explore their interactions, collisions, and intersections with Yuyutsu Sharma, renowned Himalayan poet, journalist, translator, and editor from Kathmandu, Nepal. The book is a clear example of the new world itinerancy of the modern poet, and the global efficacy of poetry, in that Yuyu's world travels have touched the hearts and minds of thousands of people who have heard his readings around the world and read his words in print and online. Not all the contributors are professional poets. ETERNAL SNOW also captures the poetic voices of a hairstylist, a photographer, a Yoga teacher, a priest, a nurse, and a social scientist. In these pages, a young poet in Kathmandu sees her late father in Yuyu's face; a social worker conjures the Goddess of the Children while serving the Bhutanese refugees in California; a New York University professor ponders an Asian challenge: setting her house on fire to become a real poet. The results captured in these poems attest to the literary collisions which occur when global poets meet. ETERNAL SNOW is a singular, remarkable, and moving work of art.
