The poems in Emily Sun’s debut poetry collection Vociferate | 詠  were inspired by diasporic-Asian feminist writers. Like these writers, Emily resists Orientalist tropes as she explores the complexities of national and transnational identities, reflects upon the concept of belonging, and questions what it means to be Asian-Australian.

PRAISE FOR THE BOOK

‘Every poem here is like a little grenade, sometimes filled with sizzling rage, sometimes wry humour, but always with expansive wit and erudition. Vociferate is polemical, personal and political. Be prepared to be blown away!’ Alice Pung

‘Ranging across continents, cultures and languages, Vociferate is a bold poetic venture, grounded in the multiple and the eclectic, from classical music to popular film, from literature through ordinary suburban living. No subject, no assumption, is left untouched by Emily Sun’s ironic, questing visions. She is a genuinely new and distinctive presence in Australian poetry.’ Tracy Ryan

‘Full of humour, rage, irony, love and frustration …’ Subiaco Post

‘… an eloquent poetic collection …’ Portside Review

‘The result is a complex personal rhetoric unafraid to push past boundaries when necessary.’ Australian Book Review

‘Emily Sun storms onto the poetry scene with this bold and intelligent debut filled with rage and wit.’ Underground Writers
