Review of Violet Energy Ingots on diaCRITICS by Eric Nguyen

“In such a light, the project of Violet Energy Ingots seems to be not how to reconcile one’s personal life with the history of oppression, but how to own up to both the oppressions we’ve experienced and to the oppressions we perpetuate. Such politics makes Nguyen a powerful poet, whose message isn’t one of protests and rallying cries but rather one of knowledge: the necessity of understanding what has happened and where we can go. ”
