Resumen:

Standing Water : A young woman in Paris encounters an uncanny presence on a tour of a small museum. A study by Rodin of the dancer Little Hanako - titled Head of Sorrow - triggers in the young woman recognition of her mother, a mother erased from her life since childhood.

Thus begins Eleanor Chai's Standing Water, one of the most remarkable first books of poetry in recent years. It is a journey into the past as well as the present - into the narrative hidden from the poet since birth, as well as the strategies that she has adopted to survive. It is a journey about how we learn to cope with, to perceive and describe, the world. It is a story about savage privilege and deprivation.

Haunting the whole is the figure of the real Little Hanako - Rodin's model, a Japanese artist displaced in Europe, the medium through which other artists dream and discover the world.
