Water Puppets Summary

Water Puppets by Amy Quan Barry

Winner of the 2010 Donald Hall Prize in Poetry In her third poetry collection, Quan Barry explores the universal image of war as evidenced in Afghanistan and Iraq as well as Vietnam, the country of her birth. In the long poem \u201cmeditations\u201d Barry examines her own guilt in initially supporting the invasion of Iraq. Throughout the manuscript she investigates war and its aftermath by negotiating between geographically disparate landscapes-from the genocide in the Congo-to a series of pros poem \u201csnapshots\u201d of modern day Vietnam. Despite the gravity of war, Barry also turns her signature lyricism to other topics such as the beauty of Peru or the paintings of Ana Fernandez.
