    “if you wish to read the story of my people, look no further than my body” I have to admit I have been stupidly skeptical when going into more recent contemporary poetry, in the age of Rupi Kaur style poems and the even less colorful tiktok verse. I will also admit I am far from a poetry expert, I have never written anything good in my life and have not even read as much as I want to. I also do not know how to rate poetry, but damn, this really was something.

I will also admit I am far from a poetry expert, I have never written anything good in my life and have not even read as much as I want to. I also do not know how to rate poetry, but damn, this really was something. In Pangea, Mian is exploring the nuances of trauma inflicted on a body, and she has composed a beautiful and hauntingly poignant look on race, relationships, and mental illness that is as personal as it is intense. This collection is filled with the abstract and the metaphorical without neglecting the more simple. I mean I really fell in love with Hinnah Mian’s use of language and if you’re like me you’ll find yourself rereading and screenshotting almost every poem here. My only qualm is that occasionally the collection felt to close together, in the sense that some poems, no matter how fantastic they felt on their own, seemed like recreations of previous ones. Overall I will definitely be returning to hinnah mian in the future! and I would recommend Pangea to any fan of poetry out there, new and old (but especially new). “here, under the flesh of my heart, a man’s corpse has settled, decaying until it is one with my body’s system. I am still learning how to give a killer a proper burial.” / “some nights i am less of a person and more of the air, heavy and vulnerable, filling your lungs” thanks to netgalley for the arc!

    Pangaea by Hinnah Mian is a soulful collection of prose and poetry that fills us with rage as we read about the effects of trauma inflicted on a human body.

This trauma, which could be coming from a country, person or within, breaks an individual. However, there is always a way to be whole again. That’s what this collection teaches you – how to mend yourself beautifully. The book starts with poems that have a person afraid of all the bomb attacks. Each piece clearly depicts the pain of an immigrant in America that bears grief, shame, and humiliation. The poems also have a person hurt and broken in love. And Hinnah’s words attempt to show brokenness is not final. Through the cracks, light enters to make us feel alive again. I have ready poetry after a long time and I am glad that Pangaea was a rich collection for me to satiate my craving for lyrical words. The poems are absolutely raw and ooze the truest emotions of pain, hurt, and craving to be whole again. Hinnah’s honesty with this collection reflects the fact that she doesn’t shy away one bit from expressing herself completely. How trauma shapes an individual could be seen in Hinnah’s words, how a nation and its inhabitants can impact the lives of immigrants is visible. How love that seems beautiful and wholesome but eventually shatters feels like. In between poems, the inclusion of prose gives us a better flavour of the author’s thoughts. The writing is easy and breezy. As for a poetry collection, the writing is indeed lucid and certainly easy to grasp by anyone. Since there is mention of terror bombing and shifting of cultural dynamics, you might consider your mental space before venturing into this book. It is every bit hauntingly beautiful.

    I’ve been on a quest to find accessible yet meaningful contemporary poetry, and I found it in Pangaea. The collection, which describes itself as “reflections on the immigrant experience and healing from trauma,” examines what it means to live in a body that doesn’t feel like yours. The poems explore trauma, heritage, racism, and sexual violence; and Mian’s examination of depression especially rang deeply true to me.

    Absolutely stunning collection. Mian is incredibly talented and her exploration of race and relationships was beautiful, heartbreaking, and powerful. This is a collection I will definitely be coming back to again!

Looking at the color of skin, the significance of cultural bias, the power of love—lost and gained, from family and from lovers—, and the impact society has on us, Mian has composed a beautiful oath for our bodies and our selves. I saw being watered down as a theme. It was mentioned various times and it was something that resonated a lot with me through this book. Hinnah Mian made a wonderful job at highlighting how you can feel like you’re not appropriate in your own ‘home’, how at times you’ll have to dilute yourself to be accepted. The only reason why this book didn’t get a perfect rating from me is because some poems were repetitive and a bit monotone. I would recommend this poetry book to anyone who’s ever felt invisible in their own skin or—even worse—targeted because of it. I also feel like this could be a powerful gift for a friend or loved one who loves poetry.

    I was very impressed with this collection. Having never read from Hinnah Mian before, and having some bad luck when it comes to poetry in the last few months, I was a little hesitant to dive into this, but I'm really glad that I did. Hinnah's poems on family, mental illness, relationships and being a brown girl in America were incredible poignant and very well written. Her words felt very passionate and like they were written with purpose. She was exposed, raw, real and vulnerable. I was really I was very impressed with this collection.

I was really impressed with how she was able to paint such vivid pictures, and I found myself going back and re-reading a lot of verses that took my breath away. The only real critique I would have is that some poems felt very similar to each other, and there were a few metaphors and descriptions that I felt she had already used in previous poems, which took away from them a bit. Some of my favourite poems in this collection include: - I Explode In Quiet - There Are More Guns In American Thank People - Different Is Sometimes Synonymous With Lonely - For The Man Who Colonized My Body - Backpacks And Bombings - An Apology - The Composition Of Bones - Pangaea - On Translating Him - The Anatomy Of Haunting - On Learning To Love A Shipwreck - A Portrait As The Flowers On A Grave - Flashbacks - Open Letter To America

In several instances, there were inherent stories in those poetries. This collection is a mix-up of poems that are quite visual in nature and abstract ones too. The allegories and allusions used in this poetry are phenomenal. The metaphors in the poem really bring out the abstract emotions through the materialistic world. The author talks about the troubles of her past relationships, the toxicity which she had to bear in the name of love, racism faced by her at school and other public spheres, the loss of identity that comes with migration, discrimination, longing for belongingness, and several other topics intermingled with her personal troubles with family and relationships. The writing style of the author is metaphorical and several times during the read I found myself bemused by the choice of comparisons. They were phenomenal and really created an image and feel of the exact situation. I would also like to point towards the extreme observation skills that the author possessed to be able to recreate those feelings and emotions right into the mind of the readers. I9 have read very less poetry but this piece of work sure did leave its mark in my mind. I could easily compare the use of literary devices in this work with that of Dickinson. They both tend to mix personal elements of their lives with impersonal objects around them in their surroundings but seem to resemble the exact emotion. This ability comes with intense observation and being relatable to the audience despite being absent. Overall, I enjoyed reading this book a lot. This is going to be one hell of a poetry collection of 2022 when it is going to be published. I will give this book 4.5 out of 5 stars. I will recommend this book to those readers who want to read some personal poetry with good and proper use of literary devices. However, I need to add a trigger warning regarding the mentioning of abusive and toxic relationships, racism, troubles of immigration.

The author doesn't need to use these complex words to paint a vivid picture in your mind. While there is depth to each line, each piece is crafted in a way that anyone can empathize. Within a few pages of reading this pre-release I had pre-ordered the book. It's the kind of poetry book that can be read and felt over and over again. Thank you NetGalley and Central Avenue Publishing for allowing me to preview this beautiful work in exchange for an honest review. Hinnah Mian, thank you for sharing your outstanding work. Congratulations on your latest masterpiece.

    i had the pleasure of reading an advanced copy of this collection, and i encourage everyone to buy when it’s available to everyone. to be a person of color in literature is to hold the stories your ancestors can no longer tell, and to illustrate the pain the rest of the community can no longer hold inside their chest.

Her use of language makes each poem powerful. I read this collection in one sitting, so a few of the poems, although very special, felt a bit repetitive as a compilation.

I loved how Pangea was used as a metaphor for the female body, and how men take advantage of both the Earth and women's bodies. And as someone who has struggled with depression for years, I think it was portrayed wonderfully in this book.

    I used to believe that poetry is not for me, thinking it over-romanticises reality, so I haven't read much of it in the past.

It feels as a confession of experiences which shaped her identity, despite it being a product of imagination. I valued how sympathetic that tone made me feel to the described situations. It made me consider how my life would be impacted if I were to face some the hardships described: Racism. Immigration. Terrorism. The craving to belong and be accepted without having to put on a mask and please everyone. Domestic abuse. Female objectification. Depression. Sharing life with an emotionally unavailable person. It's very important to be educated on such topics, as sometimes we can't realise how privileged we are for not having experienced them. And this is how this poetry collection worked for me, teaching me through an emotion-packed, rich form of putting thoughts on paper. ➺ I also appreciated how deeply cultural this book is. We get to learn a lot about customs and traditions the author grew up with, and we also get a glimpse of the obstacles a woman faces with relationships in a conservative environment. ➺ All in all, the writing style of the poet was captivating, and I read the book in one sitting while at the library. She has a way of making each line sound relatable, and brings the reader in the shoes of those who suffer. I would totally recommend her poetry, and I do plan to read more of her work in the future.
