Poetry. Asian American Studies. In Eileen R. Tabios's 16th print poetry collection, NOTA BENE EISWEIN, Tabios applies the methodology of making Eiswein, a German sweet wine, for extracting poems from her readings of Christian Hawkey's poetry collection THE BOOK OF FUNNELS and Sarah Bird's novel The Flamenco Academy. NOTA BENE EISWEIN extends Tabios's body of work that is unique for melding ekphrasis with transcolonialism. Just as she is inspired by other art forms for creating poetry, her poems have been translated into other art media--Paintings, Video, Drawings, Visual Poetry, Mixed Media Collages, Kali Martial Arts, Modern Dance and Sculpture--in addition to languages such as Spanish, Italian, Tagalog, Japanese, and Portuguese.
