Poet Arlene Kim And 'Season Of Frogs'

Elizabeth Austen

First–generation Korean–American poet Arlene Kim recalls a traditional folktale her mother told her again and again: a cautionary tale about a disobedient frog. She reimagines the story in today's poem, "Season of Frogs," from her collection "What Have You Done To Our Ears To Make Us Hear Echoes?" published in 2011 by Milkweed Editions.

Arlene is an associate editor for the DMQ Review. She earned a B.A. in literature from Brown University and an M.F.A. in poetry at the University of Minnesota. She is the recipient of the 2007 Academy of American Poets James Wright Prize. She lives in Seattle and was recorded in the KUOW Studios January 6, 2012.
