In response to the English words her Japanese mother mispronounced in her youth--"danderrian"=dandelion--and other words she misunderstood in transmission from her Japanese mother, Roripaugh presents a spread of language in this collection, investigating "word betrayals," bending words to her will as she investigates communication and miscommunication through a series of prose poems. Co-opting and repurposing the language of science, of misunderstanding, of interrogation, the poems in Dandarians demonstrate the many ways we try to be understood, culminating in an experience of aural awe.Picking up on the themes of her previous three collections, Dandarians explores diaspora and hybrid identities through the lens of childhood fear and adult anxiety, probing memory for a way to knit together disparate selves.
